I am so sorry for your loss. She was a great woman. I remember being friends when Tonya and I were growing up. I loved her as my own mom and was so happy to see her again last year. She was an amazing woman. Terri I am sorry for being the little sister, but I remember when Tonya and I hung out we would watch you get ready to go out. You are so beautiful. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. ❤️🙏🏻
