    WE are truly going to miss Tommy Ellison. He and the Five Singing Stars have appeared numerous times at the Berea Convention Center in Bennettvsille sponsored by the late Sister Lottier McLamb. It was always a sellout show and everyone enjoyed him and the group. Our prayers go out to his family and the members of the group.
