Matt.. you probably won’t remember me. I’m Frankie Dickerson. I lived next to your family on Waddel road many years ago. Junior and I had a red haired daughter named Tammy.
I have no words to express my sorrow. Junior and your dad worked together for many years at Cherokee Furniture Company and we’re close friends as well as neighbors. We saw all of you at Helens Restaurant a few weeks back.
I lost my dad on June 21st the year and my pain is near to impossible. I’m so sorry you are going through this. Please let me know if there is anything at all that we may do to help you. You all are in our prayers and will remain there. I know personally how hard it is to give up family members. We lost our Tammy 6 years and the pain is still dreadful.
I do teach a group of Grief support 3-4 times a year. It doesn’t cure, but it helps a great deal. There will be a notice on Facebook when we can start another group. Please accept this as a personal invitation to those meetings. We have all been and know what you are dealing with.
Again please accept oursympathy and know that you will remain in our thoughts and prayers.
