    Stan, when I was playing in the District Am Masters – way back in the early 80’s, Tammy was watching me and I didn’t know who she was. After the Master’s was over she walked up to me and asked me if I would play in all the traveling tournament as her partner. We teamed up for about 5 years before I went back to work for 14 years. We became best friends. The last time I spoke with Jiggs was a few months before his b’day last November. They were both wonderful shufflers and great friends. Thank you for finding this picture and article. I am going to pass it on to JoAnn, Jiggs and Tammy’s daughter. Pat
