I posted this to Facebook last week and wanted to share it here:
Bryan’s mom, Tommye, passed away very peacefully early this morning as Bryan’s sisters sang to her. Today is Tommye and Earl’s 54th anniversary. I want my children to remember her this way – as the 74 year old who was 9 months post-diagnosis with incurable Stage 4 metastatic breast cancer who grabbed a boogie board while at the beach with her grandkids and headed into the Atlantic to show them how it’s done. She showed them so much more than how to boogie board that day and each day of her battle with cancer. Attitude is everything.
