    My Dear (Tammy) Tammie Hi, its me your first and dear cousin Tommy. I wanted to stop by and tell you from our child hood growing up. I have always admired your ability to say what’s on your mind and you make it funny. You are an awesome person and you were exciting to be around. I really appreciated your love and humor. I am truly sorry that I missed your home going ceremony, but trust me I was there in spirit. My dear Cousin I know your life here was sometimes a struggle. Although, I know your trust and believe in The Almighty God kept you strong like the women Who raised you. So I leave you and our family with this Scripture That our Grandmother use to quote Us so often that I’m sure like me You knew it by Heart. Let Not your heart be troubled you believe in God believe also in me. In my father house are many mansions. I go to prepare a place for you. Tammy you see the last part of that scripture. Now that your in the Mansion… Tell your Sister Cynthia and brother James we miss and love them. Tell Mother, Aunt Essie, Uncle LB, Aunt Joyce, WE…. I will never forget them. AS God said to you. I will never leave nor forsake you…

    Love you forever..

    Cousin Tommy
