My brother was awesome. When he was just a teen, i was little and very sick. He would bring me balloon animals and stuff everyday when he came home from work. But that was only one of the thousands of memories. Love you always

I’ll miss hearing Angela say you’re outside circling while waiting for her to come out the building. I didn’t get the opportunity to meet you personally but I feel I’ve known you the same time of knowing Angela. Rest in Paradise!

I did not know Thomas Harold personally, but heard many great things about him. When my daughter Laura Ellis-Bryant was getting situated in Dallas and using her money on deposits and trying to start her household, he came to her rescue. One of the last things she wanted to worry about was the road worthiness of her older, high mileage car. He came to her rescue. As Laura’s mother, I will forever be grateful for help keeping her safe! Rest in forever Peace.
