I'm very sorry to hear of his passing. I remember driving him around back in the 80's. He would pick at me and give advice whether I wanted it or not. I learned a lot by observing him. He was always laughing.

Tommy has been part of my families life for many years. We loved you and will miss you! I loved spending time with you & mom sitting on the porch talking about your time in the Navy & how things were done back in the day! You always made me laugh! Tommy also loved my handicap brother & would go by to see him with special treats that they loved. Till we meet again. Love, Angie
