I know that this isn't exactly what this legacy page is for, but I have nobody to speak to like I did with you and nowhere else to send this. This past two weeks have been unbelievably hard for me and you would know what to do. You always have the answers I need to hear. You have the lame joke to tell me to make me laugh in the middle of crying. You know how I feel about crying. Knew. You knew these things. You knew them and you didn't judge even if to other people they would be trivial complaints not catastrophic traumas how they seemed to me. I feel selfish for needing that because there are other friends and family who were infinitely closer to you than me. Most, if not all, are stronger and braver and more resilient than I am. You have more actual friends than the number of people I've actually had a conversation with in my entire life. You have so many people in your life and I have you and perhaps a handful of others, none of which I can talk to about this. You have my back on this and you make sure I knew it. You had my back and made sure I knew it. I need it now. I don't believe in all the holy heaven stuff. I almost wish I did just because those people seem so content with even the crappy stuff. I don't even know what you believed. I'm being totally selfish but I need you now. I need all those things you could do by simply being normal you. I need you and instead I sit here and cry about it. You know how I feel about crying. Useless and purposeless. The only thing I did and will ever hate you for is your ability to make me cry when normally I can shut it down. You tell me not to. We argue about it even. Told me not to. Argued about it. Maybe one day I'll learn to talk in the past tense. Today more than other days I need you.
Tamye always had a smile on her face. She was one of the most dedicated and unselfish people I have had the pleasure of knowing thus far. Her creativity and generosity touched the lives of so many. The love she had for Jason and McRae was completely pure and beautiful.
To Jason and McRae (and family) I was deeply saddened when I read of Tamye's/ your mom's passing.
She is at peace and not suffering any more and through all of the memories and stories people share she will forever be in our hearts.
Love and hugs.
You were always in my heart and thoughts. I so wish we could have reconnected. My move back to Edmonton was a little to late.
Dearest Jason and McRae, We were very saddened to hear of the passing of your amazing and lovely wife/mother. Our hearts go out to you during this difficult time. We will treasure our memories of Hawaii with you guys. Love Keith Lisa Ally Brittaney and Carter
We are saddened to hear of Tamye's passing.

We first met Tamye when we opened Chilis together. After losing touch with Tamye from our Chilis days, we reconnected again years later right before McRae was born and again many times at Old Macdonald's Farm campground during the summers when our kids were young. Tamye had a zeal for life and this showed in how she loved her family, treated others and ran her Stanpin' Up! business. She will be missed.

Our deepest condolences,
You don't know me but I was in SU! with Tamye. I loved her right from the start. When I left SU! to pursue my dream of writing, Tamye was unfailingly supportive. When my first book was published she was one of my most vocal cheerleaders. She was kind, smart, funny, beautiful... she was GOOD. I'm just so sad, so very sad. But I am comforted by one thing- I got to know her and call her friend. I am profoundly grateful for that privilege. I'll never forget the Ninja Panda.

My deepest sympathies for this impossible loss.

A wonderful woman I know, who was radiant and loving and smart and creative and stronger than most died yesterday. It was devasting news. She's been fighting the good fight for a few months now. And now she's gone. Her bright light was snuffed out way, way too soon. She leaves behind a devastated husband and teenage daughter, along with many friends, Stampin' Up customers, fellow crafters and artisans. Her grace and strength in such a time of tribulation was a sight to behold... But I grieve for her, and her family. I know it is part of God's plan, even though it doesn't make any sense whatsoever. I will go to Tamye's memorial service, whenever and wherever that it. Because it's important to honour a fellow warrior.
Tam, we have known each other for 18 years and have been through a lot together. I miss you every day. We traveled, shared a few biz's, the love of the luluform and a friendship that can never be replaced. YOU my friend are one hell of a woman! I will always remember celebrating various events(birthdays, New Years Day shenanigans & Earls (our fave burger & caesar joint). I miss you Tam, so very much. Much love to Jason, Mac, Gwen & Brenda as you grieve the loss of a wonderful, beautiful wife, mother, daughter & daughter in law. I will never forget you. You have your wings Tam, RIP. xoxo
Jason, I was so shocked and incredibly sad to hear this dreadful news. I'm sorry that Ian and I lost touch with you both in the last few years, but I often saw Tamye's name mentioned within Stampin Up! and loved seeing her accomplishments.
I will never forget the special times that we spent together on that Caribbean cruise and the Summer in Penticton.
Thinking of you and McRae and sending love.
Mel Batchelor, Penticton BC.
Jason, McRae & family, the pain you feel now is overwhelming but from experience I can tell you that it will get better. To know Tamye was a blessing and anyone who knew her would agree. There will be days when it feels like the tears won't stop rolling, and there will be days when the laughter won't subside. Nonetheless, your hearts will always be full of the love you shared with her each and every day. My sincere thoughts are with you...
