Sallye , I have you & your family in my thoughts & prayers. I cherish the memories of the times spent with You & Tommy as far back as our senior year in high school, the honor of you both standing up with me in my first wedding, and the times we shared with the births of our first born sons who have remained friends too after all these years. I have been blessed to have had you both as part of my life. I love you & your precious family.

We offer our deepest condolences to the family of Tommy. He was a fine and honest man. Over the many years of doing business with him, we developed a friendship, and he will be greatly missed.

Our sympathies and prayers go out to all at this difficult time. May you find peace in remembering his smile and love.

Tommy lived all of the reasons we got back to Texas as quickly as we
could: an affable Christian spirit, a quest to do his best whatever he
undertook, his telling dry humor, his love for the outdoors, his hand-
shake honesty, & just being a really good man. I know Sallye, & the
rest of us, will miss Tommy till we get to be with him again!

Sallye and family - you guys were some of the first people I met when we moved to Oatmeal and I started dating Buck. We had some good times together back in the old days for sure! I remember the little house behind Hullum's Grocery where y'all lived, lol. Times have sure changed - but Tommy's love for life, family and friends never changed. He was ALWAYS in a good mood, always had a great outlook on life and one of the most enjoyable persons I was ever around. Keep these good memories you have and one day it will be ok, after the sadness of loss fades you can more appreciate the gift of a lifetime with a wonderful man. I promise because God promised us. He is resting and at peace now, and among some great friends up there.
