He enjoyed church, cooking his world-famous BBQ and knee-buckling Mac and Cheese. Tommie will be remembered for being a father’s father, being honest but stern, and what made him a father’s father. He worried about his kids and grandchildren every day. And prayed for them. He was part of the prayer and shut-in ministry at West Angeles Church of God In Christ. Tom had confessed his love of Jesus Christ at a young age where he was saved under the calling of the Holy Spirit, through Bishop Mason of the Church of God In Christ revival led by his most blessed Grandmother Moriah leading praise and worship. Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah.
