Tamara "Tammy" Lynn Copeland (Johnson)
Bobby, Chris and Tommy, I am so sorry for the passing of Tammy. As you know she was a very special person. It was a privilege getting to know Tammy and I considered her a good friend. Whether it was sitting around camp or walking along placing flags on Veterans day, I loved chatting with Tammy. We talked about many topics but her favorite topic was always her family. She loved you all so very much. Please remember my family is right around the corner, let us know if there is anything we can do. I will continue to keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
You are in our thoughts and prayers.
I am going to miss you my dear friend. That phone call when its freezing out at work and you say hey, I'm going on a break, come out so I have someone to talk too. All your camping stories and the fun you have with Christopher and Tommy, the funny things they say and do that make you laugh. I'm missing it already. You were a good friend Tammy and I will miss talking with you and always remember you.
To the Copeland family-Breyanna and I were very saddened to hear about Tammy. Breyanna just said that she doesn't know what she would have done with out Miss Tammy this past summer. She would save the day by finding her tiny dolls and every thing else she would lose at the pool in the craziest of places. No matter how small the item, Tammy always managed to find it in a matter of minutes and save Brey from an impending meltdown. Every conversation her and I shared centered around her boys. I would always compliment her on how wonderful I thought you both were, especially to Brey who was so much younger. Most older kids would brush off a younger kid as a pain, but Tommy and Chris. You both would always include her and even take time out to play catch with her just so she didn't feel left out.
Boys, I know that she loved you both so very much. She would talk about you and her eyes would light up with pride at what good boys you are and what wonderful men you were turning out to be.
I know in times like these, there are no words that can console the grief you are experiencing but we wanted you all to know that you are being thought about and how deeply sorry we are to hear of such a tragic loss.
You all are in our thoughts and especially in our prayers.
Bob, Christopher and Tommy, I am saddened by your loss of Tammy. She lit up a room when she walked in. Tammy was one that would jump in with both feet to get a job done, be it for Scouts, Pool, Work or for a friend that needed help. God needed a workerbee, so he called Tammy. Bob, Chris and Tommy, may your fondest memories of Tammy be a comfort to you.
Rest in peace Tammy.
