Sis. Tammy Ferguson

I have pictures from City Reach and from taking down the tent that need to be posted this week, but today we have a sad note concerning a beautiful friend. God really touched our friend Sis. Tammy Ferguson on Friday and Saturday in Atwater and Sunday at Riverdale. Sunday night she slipped into eternity while sleeping. All of her friends and family were shocked with the news Monday. Sis. Tammy was a dear friend to all that would allow her to get close and she will be dearly missed.

Making it harder to believe but possibly easier to accept, is the fact that we had her near us for two days and nights at City Reach Atwater. She came to visit us in Atwater early Friday afternoon and stayed with us until after church Saturday night. We had a wonderful and blessed visit with our friend the last weekend of her life.

It was a special time for us and a very special time for Odie and Sis. Tammy. I teased her all weekend about us being hesitant to allow Odie to ride in the car with a "teenager." She was fun to tease and could give it right back with the best of them. Odie had planned a post for next Saturday about their time together. Here are a couple of the pictures from her visit.

As Sis. Tammy was leaving she came to the front Saturday night and made sure that each one of us had a very personal word of encouragement and love. We begged her to stay over for Sunday but she was anxious to be in her home church Sunday morning. With final hugs and final "I love you" all around, she left us.

Sis. Tammy was so gracious to our family and she really took care of Odie whenever we were around and kept in touch with her even when we were away from California for months at a time. She was a thoughtful, kindhearted friend and an exceptional lady. Please pray that God gives comfort to all of her friends, her family and her church family.

Odie will have more on Saturday.

We will miss you, Sis. Tammy!

Update: Sis. Tammy's funeral arrangements have been announced. Her visitation will be at Riverdale Asembly of God in Riverdale, California Thursday from 5:30-8:30 and the funeral will be at the church on Friday at 1:00 PM.

Also, Sis. Tammy came bearing gifts when she visited City Reach last weekend. She brought the girls beautiful scarves and she brought me this plaque.

She was so thoughtful!
