I am Mary and Lee Roy Huggins' daughter., Tammy.. .Thomas, we knew him as "Red" as children, was always friendly and paid attention to all of us as children. He would listento our comments and take time to speak with us. He was a best friend to my parents and to all my family and myself. He came to my Birthday party back in July. It was great to see him. He was never too busy to help out with any project my parents had going on . You could count on him to be a helping hand. Lee Roy and Thomas, School friends that lingered over 60 years. I pray for his family. my family and friends that we recieve peace, understanding and comfort during this difficult and heartbreaking time. Until we meet Rest in peace dear friend.Read more
