I am saddened by this news but I know she is pain free. I always admired her courage and positive attitude in dealing with her illness. I will always remember her smile which came from her soul. I support a friend who rides in the Texas MS 150 in honor of Tami and I will continue to do so. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends. RIP Tami- you will be missed.
