Condolence: Marie,
So sorry to learn of Ty's passing. Loved how much he was so crazy about LSU. Always wanted to talk about LSU and watch the games.He even made me a tape of the songs the band played for me to play in my car. Will never forget this wonderful man. I still have picture of when he dressed dogs up for Christmas.
