May I extend our deepest sympathies-on behalf of the Keister/Gibson clan, Tammy's 4th Ward neighbors. Tammy will be greatly missed by every everyone she's ever know. Her smile was infection, her beauty glowed. Our hearts go out to the whole Lessard family.

No words may be spoken to help ease the heartache you feel. Just know in your heart, God has Tammy by the hand, leading her to the land of no more cancer and no more pain, only the light of pure love. Remember God is close to the broken hearted, lean on Him for strength, as your is beaten and His is strong. My heart goes out to you, Squeak, the girls and the whole family, as I know the dark days ahead won't be easy. Remember Tammy is always with you, 'til you meet again at heavens door.... God bless~ Christine Griffith
