I have just been informed that the husband of Tammy Dana-Bashian, Rowlett's mayor, has just collapsed with a massive heart attack. He did not survive. This news comes as Tammy is out of state attending the funeral of her mother. That is an unbelievable amount of grief to experience over such a short period of time.
No matter your politics or your religious beliefs, it is time to pause, say a prayer for Tammy and her family, or take a moment to reflect on Tammy's work for the city and recognize her efforts.
Today is Tammy's birthday.
