Mr. Logan had a big impact on my brother Ramon and I. Raymon had a great freind in Tommy in the Elementary school years.
Tommy and Bill earned respect in the baseball diamond too and I remember his good character on the field. Dottie is a good friend too. Ramon was very connected with your family, I'll bet he went to your home on occasion. I think this is due to your parents welcoming kids into their home and investing in them. I thought Bill, Dottie and Tommy were and still are fine people, some of the most friendly and positive students in the school. These younger years helped shape our character and gave us time to enjoy our youth. Yes Mr Logan must have had a big heart. Wow, an Auburn alumni, leadership in Father Purcells Purse, and director for St. Jude. No one can count the lives he changed, no one could come close. What a great man! I understand where the depth of character and big hearts of all of the Logans. May the God of peace comfort you as you await the reunion one day in heaven with him.

Diane, Sweet One, wanted you to know how much you have been and are in my prayers....I too have such respect for your "Gentle Giant," and wish I had known him better. Gigi and Papa always had such nice things to say about him and were so happy when you two found each other! I understand your plan is to move to California and I hope we get to talk sometime before then. Please know that as you start another chapter of your life, I pray extraordinary levels of comfort and peace on you and yours. Our Loving Father will sustain and keep you until that day when you see Tom again...Praise Be! Love to you, r

I knew Tom and Diane at Eastmont Baptist Church! They were in my Sunday School Class! He always had a smile on his face and he was a wonderful person! I know the family will miss him! I will, too! Please accept my sincere sympathy, love, thoughts and concern during this time! Love, Jane Adams Mobley

I only met Tom 2 years ago, but can honestly say he was one of the finest gentlemen I have ever met. His love for his wife Diane was true and pure. My deepest sympathies to his loving wife Diane and his family. You will be missed Tom, but always know that anyone who knew you was truly blessed. With love, Pam Fellows
