I am still in disbelief that she has passed. She was a constant presence in my life, since before I was born. She was present for most of childhood memories, like birthday parties, Saturday Suppers (early 80's with a church group), vacations, road trips, rummage sales and just hanging out with my mum watching MTV, CMT and Much. She introduced me to Elton John, U2 and Garth Brooks, and although I pretended I didn't like them - I did. I remember water fights and numerous potluck dinners (she often brought Rice a Roni which I thought was amazing). I recall my Mum + Wendy convincing a man to hide in a box and then jump out to surprise her for her birthday. I remember how the neighbourhood kids all knew her and adored her. I remember being so excited when Tessa was born and how proud I was to get a turn to hold her. I remember how she borrowed the nun costume that one my friends wore to a costume party, and while we were out playing at the park, my mum snapped a picture to surprise me with when the film developed. As a young adult she let Heidi and me house-sit, which was a lot of fun and a chance to pretend to be grown-up. I remember how supportive she was when my son, Kenzie was born. He called her "Auntie Tammy" just like I did. More recently, I recall her proudly showing me pictures of Tessa, Kris and the babies. She was so proud of all of them and I loved to see them and how happy it made her. In my last conversation (I didn't know it would be the last, - I really thought I would see her again) I intended to send her a text to say that I was thinking of her, however; she wanted to know how I was doing/coping during the pandemic. When I told her that I was distracting myself by playing dress-up she had a laugh and told me that's how that's exactly how she remembered me as a child (playing dress-up). When I think beyond my own experience, what amazes me the most about Tammy is the many amazing friendships, deep and lasting friendships that she had. She touched so many lives and impacted and influenced so many people. She was perhaps the most interesting person I will ever meet. She will be greatly missed, and I will think of her every time I sip a Fevertree Ginger Beer (which I now a big fan of).
