I’m lifting up your family in honor of Tommy from the LHS art class. Tommy is missed in art. His smile lit up the room and his playfulness was contagious. The students called him “slugga t”:) for some reason that stuck and that’s what we called him all year. We are so blessed to have had the opportunity for Tommy to come into our lives. “I heart you” is something always tell my students when they leave so I leave Tommy with this…I heart you Tommy “slugga t:)” xoxo

To the family of Lil Tommy (Man-Man). I am sending my condolences to the family. I watched him go from a little boy to a young man who was full of life. I know he will be missed. We have so much love for Man-Man and we know this a hurtful time. If need anything please feel free to reach out to my family. You all are in our prayers. Sending prayers and lots of love to the family.
