Default MeanGirl (Tammy) needs our prayers...

This is a direct quote of SeattleJoe's post in the Nitro 'Z' ...Please read the whole thread, Thank you!!! Dave

http://www.nitroforumz.com/showthread.php?t=26625


Hello all ..............

I just got word through Holly (IMWhisper) that Tammy's son, Jacob, was killed in an auto accident. He's only 17 (same age as Holly's son).

There are no details available at present.

Husband Joe only recently came home from the hospital after falling and badly breaking his leg.

Please keep Tammy (MeanGirl) and family in your prayers.

I have talked to Tammy. She is in major shock. Any help we can give her will be greatly appreciated.

Ladies & Gentlemen we are trying to help Tammy in her time of need. I have been asked to post this info in regards to that.

As posted by IMWhisper (Holly) in the Nitro 'Z' family:

Hey folks just got to the comp. TY Joe for posting.

If you wish to send something to help out with expenses you can send to my paypal account under webmistress@whisperscorner.com and I will write a check and send to Tammy or if you wish to mail a check made out to Tammy to my address... should I post my address here? I just don't know - my mind is a bit foggy sorry folks. Send me a PM and I will send you my address. I will then mail the checks to Tammy in batches. As soon as I find out when and where for his funeral I will let you all know so that you can send flowers - if that is Tammy's wishes.
Such an unspeakable tragedy for this wonderful family.

Understandably Tammy will not be online for a while......

I spent an hour on the phone with her in the wee hours of this morning, crying and talking. Out of respect for her and the family I will only say that his passing appears to have been quick and painless. He tangled with a big rig and the fault is unknown at this time, not that it really matters at this point. It won't bring Jacob back.

Any money collected will be put in a trust fund for the family and when funeral arrangements are made that will be posted for anyone who wants to send flowers. Tammy knows the word is out and we are all pulling for her. She is understandably is shock and when it hits her is when she will need us the most.

I will keep you all updated as I get info. This just really sucks, shows you just how fragile life is. Don't be afraid to tell your kids you love them no matter how old they are! This could have been any one of us.

Thank you for being a part of the extended family, just shows you how great the Zs really are to see "strangers" pull together and support another.

Thank you for the continuous updates on the Z sites. We all love her and are there for her if she needs us in this tragic time.
Words can not describe the situation. I am at a loss for words. All I can say is that I am deeply sorry and saddened and that my thoughts and prayers are with Tammy, her friends, and family.

Just spoke with Tammy. Passed along all the messages of love and support from all of you. The local Baptist church in her town is opening up tonight for the friends of Jacob to grieve as a group. She went to see the car today and it was bad. His neck was broken high from the accident and he had massive internal injuries. She said he wouldn't have made with the injuries he sustained. She donated his organs to help others. I am passing along this info with her permission.

The viewing will be Sunday and the funeral will be Monday morning at 10:00 am CST. This is the website for the mortuary: http://www.broussardsmortuary.com/home.asp

She wasn't sure if there would be an online guest book to sign, her thoughts are obviously all over the place. There is a link on the main page for current funerals so she said we could check there and there is a contact link for those who wish to send flowers as to where to send them.

She thanks you all for the love, support and prayers. I will continue to update as needed.

Here is the direct link to his memorial page:
