Sammy and I were so blessed and privileged to hear Tootsie's testimony from her own lips! So very powerful!!! What a blessing she was! Just lifting up Jesus! I know she is having a wonderful time in Heaven with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ and those family members she was longing to see! We love you Tootsie!

We are praying for all of the family. God bless and comfort your hearts! So sorry that we cannot be there with you.

Helen was my oldest sister she was the 1st of 12. We all called her Tootsie daddy gave her that nick name when she was young and it just kinda stuck. She had the kindest spirit and gentle soul. But once you made her mad you knew it. Im gonna miss our talks and the music we shared. I'm gonna miss everything about her period. I love her so much and I'm gonna miss her more then i can say. Rest now Tootsie till we can all be together again .
