Dillon, Denton and family,

Megan and I are so sorry for your loss. She was a blessing and so friendly when we moved to Loraine and didn’t know anyone. We couldn’t have asked for a friendlier neighbor. She will be truly missed.

With much love,
The Stinnetts

Rob and I thought the world of Tammy, as Rob and her were good friends, back in HS, & she was best friends with my sisters, and she was like an older sister to me through out the years. We loved her. We both send our sincere sympathies to Dillion, Denton and the rest of the family. We pray Gods love draws you near to Him like this pain is intended to do. God bless you all.
