We Miss You So Much Tammy
Tammy would have turned 33 years old today ~ Saturday, March 29, 2014
We all know you are looking down on us today, we all love and miss you so very much Tammy and so wish you were here to celebrate your brother Mike's wedding day (Mike & Jenna), with so much love on what would have been your 32nd birthday, Mom & Ron, Mike & Jenna and Family, Rob & Chris and Family, Steve & Lori and Family, Kevin, and the rest of your family and friends!
Regardless how old your child is..... there is nothing more agonizing then when they go missing and cannot be found for either days, weeks, months, years -- it is just horrible!!! In some cases they are found alive and well, but for those that are never found or found brutally murdered --- it is total devastation and beyond comprehension for their parents, a huge part of them dies the moment they find out what has happened to their child/children.
My heart goes out to any parents, family, and friends that have to endure this horrific journey, with heart-felt sympathy, Deb Baker ~ Angel Tammy's Mom

Back of Tammy's headstone - September 2008
The back of her headstone reads as follows:
”Welcome to My Special Garden”
I leave this world forever young, murdered in my youth, a senseless crime done by a man I barely knew. So I would like some special girls to accomplish the dreams that I had planned. Whichever you select, I would like to let you know what a special gift it will be in memory of me. A Special Girl to become a veterinarian or an assistant and to travel to warm tropical places with beautiful beaches. A Special Girl to live, laugh, dream, be a sweetheart and to marry the one you love. A Special Girl to walk down the aisle in my Moms wedding dress, the one I had her save for me. To my family, my sweetheart, and my friends - remember all our good times and our bad times too, they meant the world to me. I will always be with you and you with me - for we have such awesome memories! Love, Tammy 21 years - 10 months - 1 day
We love and miss you so much! Like the candles flame, you gave my life true light, ~ Mom Not enough time little sister ~ Robert, Mike, Steve Will always remember you, see you soon in the sky, your little brother ~ Kevin I Love You with all my heart.
