I remember the dedication Mr. Brown had to helping Tommy improve his athletic skills. He was always in the gym being supportive and encouraging. This continued during Tom's "Coach Brown" years as he was always present.

I'm out of town so I'm so sorry I won't get to come by the funeral home but I will be praying for peace and comfort for the entire family.
