Tributes:part of our family for mamy years , in fact many times when Tammy and her were together people that didn't know them thought they were sisters , they were as close as sisters could be. She was so blessed to have you both there for her at the end ,that must of been a great comfort to her to have people that truly loved her and not strangers. God bless you both.
