Tammy and I grew up in church together at Woodcock Baptist Church in Nashville, we were friends from a very young age as our sweet grandmothers made sure we were in church. Tammy and I spent a lot of time between Sunday Services just hanging out. As we grew older and lives changed we didn't see each other but when you became Tammy's friend you were always a friend. To her children I'm so sorry you have lost your mom and to Donna my hearts hurts for you as well. Prayers to all!
