Mike Rosko, Tammy`s brother speaks of her as a loving mother, who cared about her children deeply and the family was always on first place, that is the main reason, she worked so hard on two jobs, to be able to provide for her beloved kids. Mike talked about her five children, three boys, and two girls, range in age from 11 to 20, how they were always smiling and happy with Tammy, and are now in shock and grieving for their mother. He now has to deal with planning her funeral and doesn’t even know how the kids will deal with such a tragedy of a huge loss for their family. “I don’t even think she (Tammy) saw it coming, according to the RCMP officer,” said Mike. Tammy will be greatly missed by her family and friends and always remembered as a caring and loving person.

As per police officers, both drivers had seatbelts on and no speeding was involved, no more updates at this time, as forensic collision reconstructionist still investigating to determine possible reasons led to pickup truck crossing over to an opposite direction lane. Also, the fact that a pickup driver is still in the hospital slows down the investigation, so police is looking for possible witnesses of this tragic crash.
