Uncle Tommy, I was never around you when you didn't make me smile. Every thought I ever had of you was of a man who loved his family fiercely and cared for his big sister, my mother, with the kindest heart and compassion that anyone could imagine. You adored your Lynette and set a good example of a man who loved his wife. Debbie, your daughter, was your most precious blessing and the visits that you and she made to Thomasville to see us will always be some of our most cherished memories. We love you and will miss you. Love, Donna

Tommy, I love you. You were the best brother. You always lifted me up and you were always the same every time I talked to you. You were jolly and funny. I miss you. Shirley

Of all the men that I have met in my lifetime, this was one of the all time greatest. Funny, caring, loving and yes, stubborn. I am a better person because of this man and he will always be in my heart. I will miss him more than he would ever imagine and at this moment can't even think of not seeing him again here on earth. To my Dad, "Pops" when I was miffed with him, you were my first love. Thanks for being my Dad. Love forever, Deb
