Tommy was a great man I had the pleasure of meeting him when I did home health for Madeline Hicks. He was a hard worker and always so kind to me. He loved lil spoiled Coco 😊 as I did . I'm so sorry for his family's loss. May God be with each of them during the upcoming days. My heart goes out to them.
