    Ricky and Ty,
    Lana and I were shocked to hear of your mothers passing and want to send our sincere condolences. Please know that your mom will be missed but not forgotten by all the people that she has touched. God will receive her into his hands and she will have no more pain. Celebrate her life!

    God is "close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit". May Psalm 34:18 remind you that God is with you and will help you through this terrible sadness. May the God of all comfort console your aching hearts, knowing they are safe, as you adjust to life without your beloved Tammy and your daughter by your side until you hold them tight again in your arms, as our Lord Jesus promised that "all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out to a resurrection".
    (John 5:28, 29)

    My deepest, heartfelt sympathies and prayers to Tammy and Scarlet's family.

    Ty and Ricky my heart is broken. Emma was the highlight of my everyday. It became a habit of me going everyday to bring her supper and watch tv and drink coffee with her. She drove me nuts sometimes but I loved her and would tell her Emma you're a pain in my ass. She would always say I'm sorry, you know I appreciate everything you do, and I know she did. I will surely miss my afternoons with her, but I know she was always ready to go to your dad. Now when we see 2 red birds together we will know it's them happy again. . Love you both
