Don and I attended the 40th Wedding Anniversary of Tommy and Marsha Williams at their home on FM 3090 on April 30. Their actual anniversary was April 3. Tommy was the State Representative for Grimes County in the late 90’s and early 2000 before he was redistricted into other counties and Lois Kolkhorst replaced him as our State Rep at that time. When our youngest daughter Ashleigh was 10 years old she served as a page for one day at the Capitol in Austin under Tommy. It was a memorable day for Ashleigh and our family. Happy 40th Anniversary to Tommy and Marsha as they continue their lives together as one.
