Brief Message:

Tammy, it is mother's day weekend. A year ago I had to let you go for
the rest of my life here on this earth. While you were here, I had the hope that
time and maturity would help you see through so many things that were being told
to you. Now, It is my hope and belief that you know the truth about everything -
especially about me and my love for you. That's the only thing I have left to
hope for. I will do all in my power to keep your name and memory alive on this
earth. My life will never be anything close to what it would have been if you
had been here. You were a part of me. I put every bit of myself into you and I
am proud of the woman that came to be. I know you were not perfect because your
parents were not perfect. But you had so many good qualities and I know you
listened to many of the things I tried to teach you. Your circumstances were not
the ideal ones I wanted for you but you shined above your circumstances. I wish
you could have grown older and begun to understand these things and we could have
been the best of friends to one another. I don't know what heaven holds but maybe
that is what I can hope we have in heaven. You are my daughter and you live on in
my heart till I see you again. I hope you like the flowers I put on your headstone and
the ones I tried to plant to grow on your grave. I hope your proud of this website and
of how many people have visited here to remember your short life. I love you always.
Michael Taylor - Tammy's brother
When you died I couldnt belive it. I miss you very much. You taught me so much
and I will never forget you. I can't wait until I see you again in heven.
love, Michael

Tulips were always my favorite! The last thing I remember saying to you that day was a compliment on your zebra skirt - I wish I could have said more. Just
having moved to New Hope, I really didn't get the chance to get to know you, but when I meet you in Heaven we can surely catch up!

I knew Tammy and she was a wonderful girl and I loved her. She always had a smile on her face.
I remember the first time I met you. It was at church, Decatur Baptist. You were visiting your mom and you came to chruch camp. I didn't get to really talk to you much then, but I remember getting to show you around Cedar Ridge one day because you were going to be going there soon. I remeber the fun time we had at Amy Childers house that night when you brought Ashton. You were always so much fun to be around. I am so sorry that we never came to be really
close. But I will get to see you some day, and I'm thankful for that. Katye
I didn't know you personally, but I had heard so many great things about you.
Just remember you will always be in our hearts and you will always be loved.

Tammy was a peson who was always happy. She knew exactly how to cheer
someone up. I remember I was down one day during dance practice and she told me to think og God and everything will fall in place. I have a place in my bible
for her. 2 Timothy 4:7-9 that it her and will always be her.

I'm sorry about your daughter. May you always remember her and her beauty

Kesha Davis
Tammy was one of the sweetest persons that i have ever known. When
she walked into a room her beautiful smile warmed up the room and would turn your bad mood into a GOOD mood. Tammy sat by me in chorus when she attended
Cedar Ridge Middle School. Her heart was always open to everyone. She could dance,sing,act,and cheer very well. As you can see Tammy had MANY TALENTS!! She always strived for perfection. That is what shined out the most about her. Tammy, I know that you are having the time of your life right now singing andrejoicing with the angels. And remember, I will meet you in Heaven again oneday. And on that special and great day we will never part. I LOVE YOU AND REST IN PEACE.......FOREVER!!!
Lauren Arinder
I picked tulips for you because they are my favorite. Also, they open up so beautifully, just like you. I miss you girl.
Kesha Davis
Tammy was one of the sweetest persons that i have ever met. I first met Tammy at Cedar Ridge Middle School. She was so beautiful and talented in many,many ways. Every time she entered the room with that perfect smile and positive
attitude, she made your bad day go good. Tammy, i miss you so much!! But I know that we will meet again in Heaven!! I hope that you are having a good time with the angels and rejoicing wit GOD!! My prayers and thoughts go out to her family and friends for many years to come!! I LOVE YOU TAMMY, AND MAY GOD BLESS!!!!

Matt Swartz
I never knew or met Tammy but I can relate to the pain of losing a friend. I read the newspaper article when it happened a year ago. She was a great person and loved by so many friends and family. She will be remembered always.

Diann (Nelson) Beard
I can't believe it has been a year since you left us. Your small cross on gunshoot road is a reminder to me of how quickly accidents can happen. I pass it
every day, and I think of you. Everyone misses you, and can't wait to see you soon

Kelly Southern
My heart goes out to her mom and dad, I know that God is helping you through this, you couldnt make it any other way.
I have never met Tammy but I saw her memory page in the newspaper and it touched me the first time and I happened to see it a second time and it touched me again. I am a mother also and my heart goes out to you. I hope you had a wonderful Mothers Day!

I just wanted to say that I really miss you. We were really good
freinds in elementary school, but when you moved we grew apart. I wish we could
have stayed in touch, but I love you and I will never forget the memories I have. Class of 2004 will never forget you.
Betsy Kleis
I didn't know you personally but knew of you. You are truly missed! It is not the same without you!
On behalf of Cedar Ridge Middle School
On behalf of Cedar Ridge Middle School we would like to light a candle in the memory of Tammy Laird. She was an awesome girl, and we will miss her dearly. I hope that these few words will find comfort to the ones who knew Tammy best. She will always be remebered in our hearts daily. I hope that this will teach people of all ages especially young people not to take life for granted because even though it was an accident and no one was at fault, two lives were taken that day. One old and one young!!! May God bless her family and friends for many years to come!!!!

Brandy Dennison
Tammy, I am leaving these roses for you because roses signafy beauty and you are so beautiful. I pray that you rest in peace. And I pray that your family

With Love Always,

Elizabeth Naylor
to all her family and friends stay strong and never doubt God's love for you. Tammy is in a better place now. i'll keep you in
my prayers always. i love you and so does God.

Tammy - Iknow that we werent the closest of friends especially after you moved but i jsut want you to know that when you were here you touched my herat and were a really great friend. I will never forget the good times and the crazy ones!..we all love you tammy and we will all see you when we get there!
Tammy, I'm sorry your life had to end so short, I wish you could have lived alot longer. You were a very special girl to everyone .Your mother misses you deeply along with everyone else. I didn't know you that well but I knew of you the way everyone talked about you. I did get to meet you one time but we never got to talk you and your family were in a hurry ,you just stopped by Aunt Ruby`s for a short moment and that was the last time I ever saw you, but I had hoped it wouldn't be the last , unfortunately it was. We miss you Tammy !!!
The day you left was the day my heart broke. We used to be friends, until it was your time to go. The day the lord decided it was time was the day I lost my mind. I never imagined I'd lose such a dear friend, especially not at such a young age, but now you are up in heaven looking down upon me, each and every day. All I do is sit and wait, just waiting for the day I'll see your sweet face again. I miss you greatly, each and every day, but I know I will see you again someday soon
Tammy I will always remember u have special place that is my heart. I miss u so much there is no one that even close to u. I remember those days that u were at school u was always happy and have positive things to say. But i miss u dearly and I will see u one day until then I LOVE U VERY MUCH AND RIP ~ANGEL~

Garland Ryan
Tammy I never had the privilege to meet you but I have had the pleasure of meeting and knowing your mom. You were blessed to have her in your brief life as I have had the privilege to see the love she has for you. This great tribute to you not only honors you but it also honors the Lord Jesus whom you are now with. I chose a candle for that reason. You obviously were a light to your friends and a light from heaven to the people who view this moving presentation.
Nan Hammack
Sherry & Family,
I know it is hard to lose a child as my sister lost one in a car accident at 18 years of age and another daughter 43 to cancer just last year. My prayers are with you. May God Bless!
Nan Hammack (Columbus) Friend of Ruby's

Tammy: I just wanted to let you know I still think about you every day and I miss you more than words could come close to describing. I know
tommorow is your birthday so you have really been on my mind lately. I MISS YOU
SO MUCH, and I cant wait to see you again.

Michele Rucker
Hey Girl!! I miss you so much. You were always so nice and had the
prettiest smile on your face. I think about you all the time and I still cant believe you're gone. I remember playing baseball with you and we were the only two girls on the team. I'll never forget you and i can't wait to see you someday in heaven. May God bless you and your family.

May you have peace in your journey and know that everything is ok now. I know that you know you were loved by your parents and you realize the
sacrifices that were made for you just as I know you would have never allowed your parents to be hurt if you had known this would have happened. Be at peace my child........your parents and friends will see you again.
Michael Bush
I miss you and I hope you see you again really soon. I LOVE YOU!
Mike Hurt One
I remember seeing Tammy when she was at Cedar Ridge with all of us, and remembering what it was like when she moved..Everyone was hurt, especially me. I never really got the chance to speak to her and ever tell her how she made my day worth while. I still think about her constantly, and wasn't aware of this
website until recently. I remember when her friends back in Alabama recieved the news of her death, I saw one break down and cry..others became silent. Me, I sat there wondering if anything would be the same.Tammy, I wrote a song for you. I know that you've heard me sing it already from heaven. I just hope you now know how much you meant to me. I love you, forever. RIP.
WE miss you. Aunt Vicki, Uncle Terry and Trent
Hailey Cole
There is not a day that goes by that I don't think about you. I miss you so much. Its so different without you. I hope your having fun up there. I can't wait to see you agian. I love you Tammy!

Concheakah Taylor
I miss you dearly, and hate that you got taken away at an early age. Keep smiling and I'll see u again some day.
I didn't know Tammy or her family, but I came across this website and wanted to leave a brief message. I chose daffodils because they were my best friend's favorite flower. She passed away our senior year in high school. For all of Tammy's friends and family, I am keeping you in my prayers. God Bless
You all.
Christy Tompkins
