Losing Mom Part 2: The Letters

Never in a million years did I think I’d be speaking at my mother’s memorial service, and yet here I was.  We (the family) had decided it was best to do the service without a pastor or priest. My children spoke first, and then I was up.  I was SO nervous as I read this (Forgive grammar/punctuation. It wasn’t meant for print):

I wrote on Facebook that our mom’s death was wonderful & awful & perfect & scary.  Today I want to focus on the wonderful & perfect.  But I have to include some of the awful and scary because our mom was a walking miracle.  She was an example of hope and answers to prayer.  She was the epitome of what relationships can do in the life of a woman who had given up.

    Tami led a couple of sessions at a conference I attended in the UK. Her talks were entertaining and inspirational, giving me much food for thought and lots of practical tips for self-improvement both at work and at home. Her books offer more of the same. Book her - you won't be disappointed.

    Tami has spoken numerous times for the Tennessee Association of Medical Staff Services' annual education conference. She has always done a superb job! She is such a talented speaker that you feel like she is talking directly to you, not the other people in the room. In the session she will make you laugh, make you reflect, and definitely make you think.

    Tami is a dynamic speaker! She has worked with us at various times. She has the ability to draw in others into discussions. She has always gone above and beyond what we have expected. She is polished and rated in surveys as our TOP speaker.

    Your delivery was so engaging to our members that we could have stayed for more & would have lost all track of time!

    When the Conference was over and the evaluations collected and tallied – on a scale of 1 to 4, 4 being “excellent,” Tami’s scores were ALL 4’s. Comments included, “I could listen to Tami for 8 hours,” “please bring Tami back,” “would like more time for Tami West to speak,” “Tami was the highlight of the conference,” “Tami was absolutely inspiring! And funny! I would love to hear her again,” “Tami West – GREAT,” “Tami West was FANTASTIC.” Those comments pretty much say it all.
