Even though distance and years seem to separate friends, memories are treasured. The last time I saw Tommy his mom was still alive. She had cooked supper for me, Phillis, and Tommy. We sat and enjoyed the best pot roast ever and good fellowship catching up on past times. He was one of a kind and now he is resting in the arms of his creator. RIP Tommy.
