    Wow cuz! I’m sad your gone. I hated it when you moved so far away. Although as we grow older. We got to busy working and we didn’t see each other as much. We still got to see each other more! Just wish I had time and we knew these things. Would’ve taken more time to come see you guys. You always had a smile on your face and your welcoming hugs. Going to miss you Cuz!

    I only knew Tammy a short time, but during that time she was a blessing to me. I will never forget the time, we ran into each other in Walmart. We discussed the Lord and the Bible, and before we knew it, 3 other people joined in that had been listening. She always had a smile, and loved people. She will be greatly missed by her family, and all that knew her.

    You are and will always be my big sister. Words cannot express the hurt I feel as I write this tribute for you.
    From the time we were little to now, you have always been the one I looked up to. The one that charged through all the pain of this life to make a path on your own. You never let others stop you from moving forward even when it hurt. Turtles, turtles, turtles! They always found their way if they were crossing your path. I’ve never known a person that ever had more compassion for animals. You loved them with your whole heart. And oh, your passion for horses. I remember how you broke the horse that took you to the ground and through the barn but you held on for dear life and you broke that horse. You were fearless. I’m guessing you don’t have to break anymore horses now and you can ride till your heart is content.
    Growing up you were always a pick. You’d pick on me till I couldn’t take it anymore and I’d fight back. What I wouldn’t give to have one more day of your picking at me. I’ll miss our Christmas times together. I’ll miss you calling me on Tuesdays. It was our day to just catch up. I’ve already missed that so much and I miss you calling in for our morning pray time. It’s hard to pray for everyone without calling out your name, but you don’t need our prayers anymore cause you are free and with the one that gave you eternal life. We will continue to pray for and love your precious family because they are and will always be our family too.
    Worship dance will never be the same without you. You have always had such great talent when it comes to worship dance. I can only imagine your flag worship in heaven. There are no boundaries for you.
    All your pain and suffering is over and you have finished well. No more bullies, no more broken hearts, no more hurt and no more tears for you. Only peace and rest.
    I have so many memories of us growing up that I will always cherish. Life has a way of slipping by and time just moves forward and now here we are. You are in heaven with Jesus, but I’m left here to make it without you. The one thing that makes this bearable is that you are no longer in pain. When we first found out that you were sick, I would have never believed, you’d be gone.
    We were the (Terrible Three) as teenagers but as we found our way in Jesus, we became the (Terrific Three)! We three will never be the same here on earth but we will always be three in eternity because we will be together again one day.
    Till we meet again my dear big sister,
    I love you forever and always.
    I will Cherish you forever..
