Although we never met Tami, we know she must have been a wonderful person because we know her incredible daughter, Allison. People don't just grow up to be loving and caring individuals without terrific models to show them how. We send our thoughts and continued prayers for comfort and strength for the family.

I am very sorry to hear of her illness and her passing so quickly. My sincere condolences to Aunt Verna and all of her loved ones. I have not seen her since we were teens but remember she was lots of fun then and am sure she was a great and fun person later in life. She is in a good place now. God Bless her.
