Tami was one of my best friends in school. I introduced her to her husband Gary. Gary was my next door neighbor. I knew that the two of them would hit it off..but wow am I good or what?

It's so sad to know that I will not get a chance to let Tami know how much she meant to me. She listened to all my boy troubles. We spent the night at each others house all the time..and did endless songs and dance routines to "Grease"...she always used to say that "Hopelessly devoted" by Olivia Newton-John was her song forever to Gary!

We spent endless hours practicing flag and band routines....I MISS YOU TAMI! Thanks for all the memories!

Love Always,
