I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I know that the grief can be overwhelming. Tommy will be greatly missed. Be assured that one day we will not have to deal with the pain of death (Isaiah 25:8). Until that time comes, may the God of comfort provide peace.

Kathy, we were so sorry to hear of Tommy's death. He had suffered for many months though, so we all know he's not suffering now. Tommy built a section onto our house many years ago, and we will never forget how nice and kind he was to us.
