I had the pleasure of working and knowing Tommy and Connie during our Olan Mills days. What fun those times were! It was a joy when Tommy joined our Lifetouch family 10 years ago. Tommy was a sweet and gentle soul. He always had a kind word and ready smile. I will miss seeing him at work and hearing his many stories.
Amber - you were blessed with very special parents and they adored you. You were their gift from God.
Though the days ahead will be hard, please know you will be thought of and prayed over.
"HE will cover you with HIS feathers, and Under HIS Wings you will find refuge" Psalm 91:4

We worked with Tommy at Lifetouch for many years. We will feel a deep loss as the season starts and he isnt here. Tommy was always a gentle person who told good jokes and made the best chili for our department dinners. Our thoughts are with the family during this time. He was one of a kind.

Tommy is one of my oldest friends. We have fished together, been boating together, and just spent many enjoyable hours together just having fun. I don't remember a time he didn't have a smile on his face or was cracking a joke. I have been blessed with spending much time with his family through the years since we first met at Olan Mills over 20 years ago. My heart and prayers are with Amber during her time of mourning but can rest assured that he is back with his wife Connie, and they rejoicing together.
