Tammy's Gift of Life

As you all already know, Tammy's greatest gift from God and her gift to the world is her incredibly huge heart.   She spent every waking hour (and some sleepless hours) thinking about others.  At the top of her list were Alli and Jake, the two incredible children she gave me.  After that it was me, her mother and sister, our families, her many friends and her students. I can't possibly tell you all of the people whose life she touched and brightened by a kind word or a thoughtful act.  Her list didn't end there,  wherever she went,  sad and broken people would be drawn to her.  I don't know if it was her bright smile, her beautiful sparkling brown eyes or the light that always seemed to shine around her.   They would be drawn to her and tell her their problems. They always left her smiling and with new hope for a better future.
Last spring, her amazing family at Daniel Boone Elementary school had their annual spaghetti dinner fund raiser.  They generously donated the proceeds to Tammy to assist with our future expenses.
Around that time, her friend, Karen, told Tammy about her daughter, Erika.  Erika is 25 and will have to have her second ovary removed.  Tammy immediately decided to give Erika half the proceeds to help pay for her eggs to be harvested, so that she could one day have children.  
Tammy NEVER started a job that she didn't finish.  I started this gofundme page to ask you to help her finish this very important job.
Karen and Erika gave me permission to tell their story at the service.  They did not give me permission to start this page ( I know Tammy wouldn't have asked ) I hope you will forgive me.
Tammy wanted something positive to come from her situation.  Giving someonethe gift of life to help them have childeren helps her fulfill her wish.
