We were so sorry to hear Ms. Tut passed away. She and Hyrom were the best of friends with our parents, Bob and Molly Brignac. They used to love to visit together, laughing and talking about everything under the sun. Ms. Tut was so warm and friendly to us, a genuinely nice person. She loved to talk about her kids and grandkids and going to the camp with them. She had so much fun with her sisters and loved to visit with them. She was a ray of sunshine to Molly and her calls and visits were so valuable to her the last few years. They loved to go out to eat and shop and visit their other friend, Ms. Dot Alexander. Ms. Tut will be greatly missed and leaves a truly heartwarming legacy.
