For those who know Tammy Martinez aka Sandshaker, she is in her last days on this earth. Ovarian cancer and Myelodysplastic Syndrome have got a grip on her, and aren't going to let go.

Her body is tired. Peace be to her and we'll see her on the other side....
Love you Tammy.

I, too, was saddened to hear the news from Tammy. She is tired!!
She fought long and hard and always reminded us (girls) to listen to our bodies and talk to our doctors early.
I pray she has an "easy trip".... Prayers to you Tammy

Tammy has been fighting this curse for a long prayers and thoughts will be with her. For those of us who remember the destruction caused by Hurricane Keith... Tammy spent weeks attending to many of our ceaseless questions and provided much needed medical care for the many hurricane victims in San Pedro.

Gone fishing!!

I just read back over Sandshaker's posts from this last year to see if I needed to tender any apologies while there was still time.

What I saw was a good and caring soul: someone with strength in her convictions who has always been polite, civil and courteous to both her friends, allies and those with whom shes disagrees.

When I find myself slipping, I will try and remember your example Tammy.

Wherever your journey takes you.........go in peace.

It's rarely rocket science, it's usually just math: then again if you can't do the math.......
