On Dec. 7, an angel was brought into the world, she was named Tammy Banks. At the time nobody could know how she was going to change everyone who knew her. No matter the change that come her way, she showed the ultimate strength, which was kindness and love. She only loved, and never gave up and she kept a pure soul. She took people and only nurtured and cared for them. She contained one of the biggest hearts within the world. Such a pure soul only means that God didn’t want to wait very long ‘till he got to meet and keep her. On earth everyone knew she was an angel; now she is still an angel, just an angel at home. All Angels Must Return Home.
