Tammy Mellott-Taylor graduated high school with me and 200 + fellow students from Bellaire High School in 1967. The last time we all saw Tammy was at our 50th reunion in 2017. She sat with some of her classmates and friends while we all shared memories of those years that seem so far away, yet very vivid in our minds. Rest in Peace in Eternal Life, Tammy. Once a Big Red, always a Big Red.

Tammy Mellott-Taylor graduated with me and two-hundred-plus students from Bellaire High School in 1967. Our group did our best to stay in touch with one another through the years by attending periodic reunions, our last one being our 50th in 2017 which Tammy attended along with several of her friends from those early years. Our group will miss her, and we will remember her passing with fondness and admiration. Rest in Peace in Eternal life, Tammy. Your fellow Big Reds and I will always remember you.

Tammy was such a good neighbor and friend to my parents. I enjoyed Nathan as a student and Tammy was there for the role of “homeroom Mom” for parties at school. Prayers go out to her family. May you rest in peace, Tammy.
