Gary and I extend our sincere sympathies to Tammy’s family. She was our neighbor and we considered her a friend. She was always kind and on top of things at the veterinary clinic. We will miss her smile and wit.

My thoughts and prayers to Tammy's family. I didn't know Tammy well, but when I was living in Sigourney, she was very helpful at the Sigourney Vet Clinic with my cat, Raspberry. God bless you all.
