    Some of my earliest childhood memories are that of all of the cousins playing together at our house, Grandma & Grandpa’s and Uncle Jim & Aunt Rhetta’s. Although years have passed, we grew up and went our separate ways, those special family bonds & memories are a gift I will always treasure. Rest in peace Tommy.

    Dear family and friends of Tommy, He was one remarkable man that I’ve had the privilege of knowing for over 35 years. We treated each other as brother and sister. He was very close to my brother George as well. I’ve seen Tommy thru his ups and downs . I loved it when he laughed….he owned that laugh. I just helped him a few days before going into the hospital. He was a Wonderful, Loving, Friendly and always ready to help kinda guy. R.I.P. Tommy I Love You
