People sent prayers to Tommy’s family, in addition to generous donations, to help them get through this difficult time.
Tommy revealed in the GoFundMe page description that his daughter Alyssa left behind a two-year-old son named Kingston.
He goes on to say that the money raised by the campaign will be used for Alyssa’s burial, funeral, and to “help the welfare” of her baby.
“Unfortunately, Alyssa was not covered by any life / burial insurance because her coverage had expired on her birthday in July,” he says.
“All funds raised through this campaign will be used to pay for Alyssa’s funeral, burial, and to benefit the people of Kingston.” “Our family is truly grateful for any assistance we receive,” reads on.
She had a job as a real estate agent. According to one of her Facebook posts, she has more than two years of experience in the real estate market.
While Tommy has revealed that he has a grandson, Alyssa’s partner is unknown. According to the Little Rock Family website, she has a brother named Mitchell.
