    Tommie, June and Family,

    I am so sorry for your loss. Your Mom was truly a sweetheart. She always made me feel so welcome and I know she has always been there for each of you. I have fun memories of when Tommie and I would hang out at your house and your Mom was always smiling and laughing with us. May each of you feel God’s presence and love as you walk through this and treasure those fun memories your Mom has left you with.
