I was so saddened to hear of Tommie's passing. I know she was the sweetest Lady. Always a kind word to offer, and always wanted to make sure everything was going well for her friends she worked with. I know she had the greatest smile and I loved to hear her laughter. I would always have to tell Tommie, "You look like you just stepped out of the Beauty Shop." She would just laugh and say, "awww, no I don't." But she did. I will miss her very much.
To each of her Family members, I send my deepest sympathy. Hold fast to all those lovely memories you have of Tommie. Maybe while they are so fresh in your minds, jot a few things down that you would never want to forget. May God give you much peace and comfort now and in the days ahead. He will always be with you as she will always be near you in your hearts.
