This is the third part of the discussion of it was like during Deborah’s battle with brain cancer. Back story: Tommy discovered his passion as a songwriter and author after losing his wife, Deborah, to an aggressive form of brain cancer. Throughout her battle, they kept God at the forefront, as they always did together. 3 years later, God called her home. To cope, Tommy began attending grief classes. He was told to write a short story on his experience to share. His classmates suggested he make it into a song – so he headed to Nashville. Shocked after hearing the song, he knew this was God encouraging him to continue. In 4 short weeks, he wrote a book, Miss Her More Today Than Yesterday.
