My earliest memory of Tommy was when his new beautiful car was parked in the driveway...I was around 4 years old. I was playing out front with my friend Patty and we decided Tommy’s car needed a washing! So we got out buckets, scooped up some gutter water and started pouring into the window! I don’t think I have ever seen anyone’s face so red since then. Sorry Tommy....

My deepest condolences to Kitty Lou and all of his children....may he be fishing along side the most beautiful river in Heaven....

I must’ve been about 12 years old and my dad had this most beautiful Harley that he cherished and he let me polish the chrome on the bike every Sunday morning and then he would take me for a nice long ride. Well one Sunday after I finish polishing the chrome he took me for a ride and we didn’t come back for three whole days we ended up at a bluegrass concert and it was so much fun sleeping next to the fire listening to the music .
My dad was a social butterfly it seemed like he knew everybody there and he introduced me to all of his friends we danced I think I had my first beer and when we rode home oh boy my mom was so mad because back then we didn’t have cell phones and he certainly wasn’t going to pull over to tell her we were going to be gone for three days. But I think that was the best time I had with my dad. And I will cherish that memory always ♥️
