  • I will always remember my friendship with Tami during our time together at Creative Foundations. She always knew just what to say to brighten my day and make me laugh. Tami and I had many things in common Including our love for animals. We have laughed at the fact that we had the same orange hooded shirt with butterflies and a pocket in front, we even wore it on the same day a couple times. Tami was one tough cookie, but that is one thing I really admired about her. I know she is now at peace. I will forever treasure the friendship we shared.
