    Tommy touched the lives of many people, each and every one of them can recall a time, with a smile in their heart, of how he has touched their lives. May the fun-loving, easy going spirit of Tommy live on in the memories of his children, family and friends to lighten their hearts and forever provide comfort after this devastating, senseless and tragic crime. May the good times Tommy shared with everyone overshadow the pain and injustice of his brutal murder and may we all bear witness to justice being served on the one responsible for taking Tommy from his loved ones. Rest in peace Tommy, thank you for all the laughs and memories you left me and others.

      Lonzo, your right about it being a love triangle but lets be fair here…..they were all guilty of being pieces of shit. Tommy was just an unfortunate player in a fully predictable, preventable situation.

You say you saw it happened? well then why in the report did you say “YOU FELT COMER WAS THERE TO FIGHT” Thats completely different the what you told police, why is that? and HOW DOES IT TAKE 37 MINUTES TO GET TO THE HOSPITAL WILL? THATS FROM THE LAST TIME, TOMMY CALLED MICHELLE, TO THE TIME YOU ARRIVED AT THE HOSPITAL.? IN WHICH A DPS OFFICER SAW TOMMY COLLAPSE IN THE ER LOBBY. HE WALKED IN HIMSELF. SO WHAT WAS SO IMPORTANT YOU HAD TO GO TO YOUR HOUSE FOR? HOW IS IT KELLY KNEW ABOUT TOMMY? BECAUSE WILL WENT HOME FIRST! YOU KNOW WILLIAM WHAT YOU DID ! HOW CONVENIENT.YOUR STORY CHANGES FROM ONE COP TO THE NEXT,

      I agree with the where are you and why do you hide. You seem to think you have a story that needs to be told, problem is no one wants to hear it. No one believes your lying mouth. Go ahead and keep the misdirection tactics up, it doesn’t shift the focus from YOU! WE know what you did Michelle, the truth will come out; and I am not referring to your version of it. The one where you try to hide your manipulations. I am speaking of the real truth, you know, what actually happened and what was really going on!
      I have been wondering, how does Steven’s family feel about you? Have they too figured out your game and how you lied and used him? Has he? I am sure all the guilt and fear you live with every day must validate the choices you made. Karma is a wonderful thing.
