Tammy was an amazing mother to her children and also to the children she took into her home. Those include the special ones, Shane Stroud (Alicia), Jay Vaughn (Jennifer) and Johnny Shaffer (Amber).
Tammy's children and grandchildren were her greatest love, and she would do anything to protect them. Her love and unselfish kindness always went above and beyond all measures. Always a kid at heart, she still loved Snoopy, H.R. Puffinstuff and most of all Tinkerbell. Her child like ways made her the beautiful person she had become.
