Tommie was one of the founders of a new church in California where I was pastor in the 70's. Tommie was very active and work tirelessly in starting a new bus route which brought hundreds of children to church over a period of several years. Tommie, with her sister Jan, was also a teacher in children's church and saw many children come to Christ. When she moved to Texas she continued her work with children. Tommie is a sweet and wonderful lady. It was a wonderful time for here the moment she entered heaven and finally saw her Lord for the first time, after telling others about Him for so long. America and the world need more people like Tommie in it and that would make this world a far better place than it is now. Although we will miss Tommie, we look forward to a reunion with her as soon as the Lord permits. Watch for us, dear Tommie, we are not far behind. We loved you then, we love you now. You were and are a great person who made you life count in the most important way. It was a life well lived.
Your friend, one time pastor and brother in law.

Tommie Sue Emily is my cherished sister twice over. She is my sister by birth of our parents, Tom and Sue Ingram but also she is my sister by the new birth through our Lord Jesus Christ. I love her and I miss her. My favorite memory of my sister is when we taught Children's Church together at the East Paris Baptist Church in Paris, Texas. We both loved teaching children in Sunday School. We mentored each other. I would bring the introduction to the lesson one Sunday and she would teach the lesson and then we would reverse roles the next Sunday. She had some of the most exciting and fun ideas for lessons. She even became this wonderful character called "Daffy." Oh my, how the children loved Daffy. And who did Daffy love the very most? Jesus. We were best friends. We sharpened each others skills by loving critique of each lesson. We used so many props and characters. The pastor stated Children's Church became so exciting the kids would run you over trying to get there after Sunday School to get the best seats. I cannot tell you how many children Tommie Sue personally lead to the Lord Jesus Christ. I can only imagine the "homecoming" and welcome she must have received in heaven. She truly was a treasure on earth. How I long to see her again and I know I shall when the Lord calls my name. What a reunion we will have my sweet sister! Until then, you are missed!!
In loving memory, your sister twice over,
Jan Miller
