I met Tommy in person in the year 2000 when his first wife Dot was near the end of her life on earth. It was in her hospital room and I immediately noticed a caring, protective, humble and loving man in Tommy. My first impression of him was accurate. I was one of the women in Dot's Bible study class that had been praying for Tommy's salvation long before I met him. God answered our prayers. As a result, he remained in my life. I was present with Tommy and Susan when they were courting and married as part of the home group we shared. What a man and what a legacy he has left for all who knew him. I love Tommy and by faith have the hope of seeing him again in the presence of our Lord one day.
