I was saddened to hear of Tommy's passing. I have known him since school yrs. & worled with him in our early yrs @ Roses Dept Store. We went to church & youth together @ Marion Church of the Nazarene also. He was full of humor, fun to be around intelligent & just all around good guy. I will pray for all the family during this difficult time.
