We are so sorry to hear today of Tommy's passing. He was our deacon at one time at Everett Hills and we got to know him as a very kind man. To Barbara and all his sweet family we want you to know you will be in our prayers during this difficult time. We love you all.

Tommy was the best brother-in-law any one could have! He will always be remembered for how good he was to my mother-in-law and father-in-law as they got older! He was a great father, grandfather, uncle and friend!
