Dear Tammy and Jeff,
Please accept my sympathy in the loss of your Mother. We spent a year or so working together at Irvine Travel and she made a short trip with another employee named Judy to visit us in Holland while on sabbatical in 1976. We put a lot of miles on that Opal Cadet and had so much fun. Over the years our paths crossed either in the agency or shopping and she always had that smile and optimism. You should put her to rest knowing how many lives she touched and with a "Go Boilers". You will be in my thoughts.
Sincerely,
Pat Hullinger

Tammy, I don&t know if you will remember me, but my family and I lived next door to you many, many years ago on Chinook Lane. I have vivid memories of you and I trying on your mothers shoes, walking around your room and singing Elvis Presley songs. My condolences to you and your family. I remember your mother being a very kind person.
