    TO TAMMY, MY BEAUTIFUL SECOND DAUGHTER, I WILL NEVER FORGET OUR TIMES TOGETHER AND THE LAUGHS WE SHARED. YOU WERE UNIQUE IN HOW YOU HANDLED YOUR ILLNESS AND NEVER, NEVER COMPLAINED. I KNOW YOU’RE RESTING NOW AND YOUR PAIN AND FRUSTRATION IS GONE. YOUR FAVORITE LITTLE PET BEAUCA WILL MISS BEING WITH YOU AND LOVING YOU AS NO OTHER DOG COULD. I HAVE MANY GOOD MEMORIES OF EVERYTHING WE DID WITH MOM,LAUGHING UNTIL WE CRIED AND ALL OUR DISCUSSIONS. I WILL MISS YOU ALWAYS, YOUR BEAUTIFUL SMILING FACE, THE SINCERE LOVE YOU HAD FOR YOUR MOM AND BROTHERS AND YOUR WONDERFUL FRIENDSHIP THROUGHOUT THE YEARS. REST PEACEFULLY IN GOD’S ARMS AND REMEMBER I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU. YOUR SECOND MOM, PATTY

    Our deepest condolences to the Ruggiero family. Tammy was a sweet girl and a lovely young woman. She loved our dog and would gesture for my husband to bring Teddy over so she could pet him. May you RIP with the angels.
