I had the honor and privilege of knowing Tootsie since I was an infant. She and my mom were great friends. Tootsie was a wonderful historian sharing my childhood with me. She was a loving and generous woman. Always had something cooking on the stove, that would make one hungry and she was willing to share. In our most recent visits our conversations was about Jesus and his wonderful love. During one of those visits we shared Communion and I will always cherish that memory. May her family be comforted in their loss knowing that Tootsie was loved by many and she was known by her Lord and Savior. I love you Tootsie

I have known Tootsie, my whole life. She was one of the strongest women, besides my Mom. She loved Jesus, and her family with her whole heart. When my Mom got Cancer. Tootsie had a pillow slip blessed with the minster. I still have that slip. She would call Mom ,they would talk for hours. She helped Mom and I at the worst time of my life.Before and after my Mom passing. I am praying for comfort and strength for her family. She was the backbone of her family. Rest in peace Tootsie. Loved you dearly.
