Great memories of growing up with Tommy, lots of days hunting and fishing in the Horse Pasture with him. His Dad and my brother would mentor to us in our younger years ... Always fun and laughter on these trips... In our teenage years he and I spent many hours along the banks of the rivers fishing and hunting the ridges for Squirrels.

My sincerest condolences to Mr. Tommy's family and friends. May God abundantly give comfort and peace to you all.
Everytime I would see Mr. Tommy, he always had a smile, kind words, or a joke that would bring laughter, and smiles.
He made this world a better place to live in.
