    "My first step was getting organized and understanding what Tammy's immediate goals were. Then, we were able to find some solutions that Tammy was comfortable with."

    "Financially, I didn't know how to take care of myself. Sure, I knew how to pay my bills, I knew how to grocery shop, but I didn't know how to truly manage my finances."  

    "My famous phrase is 'You've got to just put your big girl pants on and deal with it.' And so I figured it out, and I found my resources, and got where I needed to be."

    "Tammy really valued MassMutual's whole life product. With Kate at home, she wanted to make sure everything would be okay if anything happened to her."
