Guestbook

I remember back in the early 80's, Tammy and I hung out at Rising Park, and we cruised the countryside in her Firebird, jammin' to the Reo Speedwagon album "High Infidelity" Her favorite song on the album was one called "Tough Guys". One verse really stuck out to her, and when the song came on, she would crank the radio, and at one particular verse, she would scream it out, and laugh hysterically. This is the verse:  
                                " She doesn't like the tough guys
                      She says that they've got brains all where they sit
                                    They think they're full of fire
                                    She thinks they're full of shit! "

I can still hear her laugh. We had good times together. Riding horses was also something Tammy loved to do. Those were good times, and good memories.  Memories that I cherish. One thing that Tammy didn't know about, that I never let on, was that I was crazy about her! I was afraid to let her know that though, for fear of being pushed away. I valued our friendship, and didn't want to lose that.
A good friend to me always. You are missed my sweet friend! I would have truly loved you!
                                   Hugs!

Oh Tammy through the years. I don't know what to say I'm just at a loss. You were my friend, my brother's wife, my sister. The best Auntie in the world and we miss you so much. I know that you will always watch over us as you did in life. Save a place for me as we will meet again one day.
