    All our prayers and love to Tommy and the family. She will be greatly missed. We were blessed to have known her and will always be a part of my heart. Everytime I see a butterfly I will think of her and Pops. I know we will have a beautiful angel watching over us. Love and prayers Emily and Charlie Collins.

    Tommy and family
    There are no words that I can say to make you feel better. Just know she was a true and dear friend to me. She and Tommy have been taking care of me on bowling trips ever since I met them. I loved her like a sister. I will miss her keeping me informed about the grand kids. She was so proud. Love to all of you – just remember she is with her daddy watching over us.
