I remember when she was a little girl. I would visit with Tom and Tammy a lot at their home in Waukesha, when I started going to Pilgrim Baptist Church. Her family is so loving and kind. They helped guide me in so many ways. I’m so truly sorry for the loss of their daughter. My condolences, to her parents, siblings, husband, Simon, family and friends.
