The Savage family sends are sincere sympathies to Uncle Wayne's family.
We will miss our Hart family patriarch and his generous support of the Hart family reunion.

We are sad to hear of our loss of Tom, but happy for him to hear he has gone "home". We have lived across the street from Tom & Phyllis for nearly twenty years and we could not have asked for better neighbors. When God said "love thy neighbor," God must have had Tom in mind, because Tom was always ready and willing to lend a helping hand. Thank you Tom, for all of the tools you let us borrow, and for all of the conversations that we will miss! Rest In Peace! Rod & Cindy Melton
