Tammy’s strength as a woman surpassed her in size. Her family and animals always came first. She was brilliant and spent years of her life studying and practicing natural medicine. Tammy always had a cure for everything. She was blessed with beauty, brains and a heart full of love. To know Tammy was a true blessing. She touched everyone she met with her positivity, love and humor. Tammy will be missed and forever loved.
