"Sis", (as we all knew her) was a wonderful woman. She was always so sweet and nice to me and our family over the years. I send my sympathy to the entire Tatom family today as you put your Mama, Grandmother, Great- Grandmother, and Great- Great Grandmother to rest. I know she and Bart are having a special reunion. Sending my love to all of you.

Your mother and your father are among some of our very best memories growing up. Their love, acceptance and work ethic made for having true family and friends.
.... along with Aunt Sis's home cooked meals :-) and great conversations.
I feel your pain and loss so deeply and for it I'm truly sorry. Blessings as you continue to pass along their legacy of love. I love each and everyone of you.
