    Heartfelt thoughts and prayers to Tommye’s family. I worked with Tommye at the Arkansas Department of Health and will always remember her as one of the most kind and thoughtful persons that I have known. I think of her every year when I hang a Christmas ornament that she made for me.
    Again, deepest sympathy to her family.

    Tommye hired me to work for the health department when we moved to Monticello in 1991. I learned so much in the 3 years I was there. We recently connected by phone in Broken Arrow. It was so good to catch up
    on Arkansas news. She will be missed.

    Jay & Sandy,
    So sorry Tommye has left us-but we are assured She went to her Heavenly Home with God! We loved Tommye & will miss her.
    Janie & Tommye met 70 years ago in 7th grade of Drew Central.School, Monticello, AR. Lifelong close friends. Tommye was attendant at our 1962 Wedding. Throughout the many years of our close friendships, we enjoyed many private visits as well as at class reunions. Tommye always ensured our class/friends remained close no matter where in US we all lived. She was the “go to classmate” responsible for reunions. Tommye was our close friend.
