I remember Sis Tomerlin from our time in the 80's at Heights Assembly of God in Austin. She was always so sweet to us and our children. We still have Christmas towels she crocheted for our son Josh. She was a precious lady. We have not seen her sinced we moved from Austin all those years ago. She leaves a godly legacy no doubt to many. Prayers for her precious family.
