I'll never forget all the sleepovers at your house in high school and seeing your mom's smiling face whenever I walked through the door. She was such a vibrant lady, and her laugh was contagious. In a world of black and white, she was magenta!
I feel lucky and blessed to have known her, and I know that my life was only one of the many she touched. Please know that you, Tammy, and your dad are in my thoughts and prayers during this painful time. I hope that memories of your mom will make you smile in your darkest moments -- I know that's the way she would want it!
Sending hugs and love from an old high school friend.
