    😢 Tammy my friend I’m so sad that I have to wait to see you again. WOW!!! We had shared so many times together and had shared our deepest problems and regrets with one another as well as leaned on each other’s shoulder in hard times. Tammy our talks and time together meant a lot to me and I appreciate you being a real friend to me. I love you Tammy and will miss you and that big wonder smile until the moment we meet again.

    As your birth daughter, It’s a terrible feeling knowing someone who gave me life is no longer here. There’s so much I wish I could ask you, and talk to you about but I can no longer do these things. I’m sorry for the dumb fight we had, and looking back on it I realize now It’s only because I was hurting. I wish I could have known you better, mom. Rest in peace. <3
