Todd, Tammy and the rest of the Podojak family. My condolence to the entire family at the loss of you mom. I had only met her a time or two at different events Tammy had, but I remember her as being so beautiful and very "stylish". I know first had how losing your mom is such a devastation no matter how old we are. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers as you grieve.
