My families condolences to the loss of Tommie Joyce. I remember with fondness growing up with Tommie , Leonard, Tommy Lynn along with the Johnson family. Church and music was our dad's enjoyment. Time and distance separates but I wanted the family to know she was a large part of my young childhood and was always kind. I will always remember her and Leonard. Our very best wishes in this difficult time.
Johnny and Betty Jo Johnson, Maxey Texas.
