I just shed some tears. Tommy and me were in the Arny together at Ft. Hoid TX 89th Military Police Bridage 1982. We played a lot of pool and we hustled a few fellows a couple if times. We also ran together and one day I got tired really quick and Tommy said you are pregnant and I laughed. Well guess what I was with our company commanders baby. My son in 36 now. Good times and I will miss him he was a good man.

Tommy, I will miss talking to you on Facebook and your messages. Our families go way back when you lived in Boone County in WV. We had a lot of good times and good Christmas dinners fixed by your mom. I know you are reunited with your loved ones and your medical problems are over. ❤️

I'm having a hard time putting into words what I want to say.. There's so much I want to tell you that I can't now but I know in my heart you know. You were like a father to me for so many years. Some things I didn't understand before but now I do. Thank you for being Kinslee's Papaw and like a dad to me. I'll always love you and never forget you.
