Tommie Lou was one of the funniest, loving, and most spiritual people I’ve met.
I first met Tommie Lou when my oldest sister Cheryl became part of her family by marrying her son GlennDarrell. I lived in Amarillo at the time.
Her and KT always made me feel so loved. She had the best hugs ever.
I’m sure my sister Cheryl, and GlennDarrell and their whole family will miss her dearly. But they are at peace knowing she is in a better place, living pain free and happy. I can only imagine her singing with the angels. ♥️

I met TL on my trips to see my sis Cheryl and her beautiful family. She was very proud of her family and where she lived. It was the most beautiful place on earth she told us. I loved the way she used her hands as she spoke. I will miss her smile. I am praying for her beautiful family and pray they can have peace that passes all understanding. She really is in the most beautiful place ever. Hold onto the beautiful memories. Forever in our hearts. Love you all, Cindy.
