We are so sorry for your loss. Tom was such a loving and funny man. He always had something nice to say and always included a funny story. We are enjoying all of the pictures that have been shared of him and his beloved family. They are a testament to a life filled with love and caring.

Tom I want to thank you for all you did for me growing up. I thank you for your guidance , scoldings, navigations and understandings. You were one of the most influential men in my life. I've often wondered what I would've done or been without you and your family. I am going to miss our talks and visits. Until we meet again my friend with love.
Your Surrogate Son, Jimmy Morris Jr.

Janet, we are keeping you, your mom and the entire family in our thoughts and prayers. While your hearts are broken, may you find comfort in knowing that your dad is finally at peace in a beautiful place. I hope he finds my mom and can tell her a few jokes. With sympathy and love, Karen, Harry & Kyle
