Tombo, Debbie and Family,
Thoughts, love, and prayers are with you all at this time. May the peace of the Lord bring you comfort in the days ahead.
So many memories, from shopping at Watts Dept. Store to school activities! We will all miss Mr. Watts. He always had a smile for everyone and was such a pleasure to know.
I will never forget Mr. Watts. I developed a friendship with him when I was in high school and college during the mid and late 60's . His store was the only store that I thought I could have the "in" clothes from. He was a gentleman who never forgot you through the years and always mad enough feel special. The world was a better place for his presence. He will be missed.
Susan, Tombo, and Weegie,
The Watts family will always be such a vivid part of my Camden memories, from Girl Scouts to riding to school with Tombo and Susan, from fellowship at First Baptist Church to football games with post game French fries and Coke at Duck Inn. Nora worked at Watts; Tombo worked at Woodlands. I remember putting bubble lights on your Christmas tree. Tombo and Susan were at our house the Christmas Eve downtown Camden burned. Many hours were spent with the Camden Community Theater on backdrops and rehearsals. Tombo ushered at my wedding. I could go on and on.
I was so glad I was able to see Mr. Tommy and Weegie this past August. I will forever remember him as a fun, kind, loving, Godly man. In my mind, I ride my bicycle from Berg Avenue, through the Guthrie's back yard, and on to Mary Street to visit or Nora and I pick Susan up in the Deal's Jeep for a Marino's snowcone.
Mama and I love all of you and grieve with you. We wish we could be there to comfort you. Camden will not be the same.
