Welcome friends of Tommy Hiett
Blake Milton here, taking care of Tommy's affairs after his passing Saturday, January 25th 2014 around 6:45
For quite some time I've been tending to my lifelong friend Tommy Hiett during his battle with cancer.
It was a difficult struggle for him and he put up a fight all the way to the end. He loved and lived life and just didn't want to leave us.
The world was a better place with him in it and is greatly diminished in his absence.
