My brother was so funny. One of The things I will miss the most is his laugh.

But when Jim and I got married my Momma told me during the ceremony they heard someone crying really hard and sobbing, they didn’t know who it was but realized it was Tommie Lynn back in the vestibule at Souls Harbor. He loved his big sister. He loved all his family so so much.

Another story is one night during church Jim wanted to ask me out on a date but was nervous about asking me he saw Tommie Lynn in the back of the church and asked him if he thought I would go out with him and Tommie said, “Are you kidding? She would love to go out with you.” Even though it was true, I told him he didn’t have to make me sound so desperate. Lol!
