Memorial services will be held today for Tammy Tye, a University of Hawai'i swimmer who was killed in a traffic accident last week.
A service organized by the UH swimming and diving team will be held at 5 p.m. at the First Presbyterian Church of Honolulu. A sunset service will follow at Ala Moana Beach Park's Magic Island.
