    I can’t wrap my head around this news Tammy. I miss our talks while folding laundry at the center. I remember your smile most and your love for those kids of yours. Your family and friends are in my prayers. Your life was so far from over, I feel like this last year you were really finding yourself and becoming the happy Tammy you wanted and deserved to be. Tell Jenn I said hello, I’m sure you’ll cause a scene together in no time. Xoxo

    My condolences to your friends and family. I enjoyed our years together at what used to be Ostego Manor. We may not of worked together all the time, but when we did you were always pleasant.
