Tammie was a fun person to get to know. She loved nice old furniture and the beauty of plants and the outdoors. Tammie and I shared many long talks about her life growing up in the Lakelands area and the many friends she made along the way. Rest in Peace Tammie and I will always remember our friendship. Scott
