    I am so sorry for your loss. I grew up with Tami in Humbird and went to the same little Methodist church. My mom, Maryann Johnson, knew her parents well. She will be missed.

    Tami was such a wonderful woman! She was so kind, gentle, and caring. The world lost one of the most considerate women it has come to know. I will not forget her or her love for life.

    Pastor Mike and Family;
    I am deeply saddened for your loss. Sis Tammy was a true angel sent from heaven. I will never forget how she made me feel so loved and welcomed after a long absence from church. She would give me a great big hug and tell me she was glad to see me. I always felt as if I never left. I will miss Sister Tami dearly. May God bless you and strengthen you in the days ahead.
    Love, Sister Angela

    Dear Bro Mike, Jeff, Mathias, and Amy:
    One of my last memories of Tami is her singing “In the Garden” at Faith Deliverance Holiness Church, after sharing that it had been one of her mother’s favorites.

    **In the Garden**
    I come to the garden alone
    While the dew is still on the roses
    And the voice I hear, falling on my ear
    The Son of God discloses
    And He walks with me
    And He talks with me
    And He tells me I am His own
    And the joy we share as we tarry there
    None other has ever known
    He speaks and the sound of His voice
    Is so sweet the birds hush their singing
    And the melody that He gave to me
    Within my heart is ringing
    And He walks with me
    And He talks with me
    And He tells me I am His own
    And the joy we share as we tarry there
    None other has ever known
    I’d stay in the garden with Him
    ‘Tho the night around me be falling
    But He bids me go; through the voice of woe
    His voice to me is calling
    And He walks with me
    And He talks with me
    And He tells me I am His own
    And the joy we share as we tarry there
    None other has ever known

    What a beautiful and peaceful image I have of Tami “in the garden”, as the Lord walked with her and talked with her as He re-affirmed that she WAS/IS one of his own. May you find comfort in your memories and may peace be yours as you mourn the loss of Tami. God bless.

  8. Pastor Regina Malone
