Tommy Langley has been dead nearly two years, but his presence looms over his family’s Radcliff home as if he never left.
His cars are parked in the driveway. Pictures of his smiling face hang on the walls. Frogs, a favorite, are littered throughout the home.
For two hours while Mary Sue Sharp talks about her son, daytime criminal justice shows play on a muted television. Next to the television hangs the sympathy quote, “If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I would walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.”
