My heartfelt sympathy to the family. I loved Tommy. He was such a pleasure to work with during my time on the Pope Cemetery Board. He was full of laughter every time! He had many stories to tell me about my Dad and always told me how much he thought of my family. Tommy will be greatly missed by all who knew him. He is now rejoicing with his beloved Jane.

I remember Uncle Tommy sharing the “Legend of the Dogwood,” at church when I was young. It was the first time I had ever heard the story. He spoke about this more than once & always shared his thankfulness to God for sending his son to die for an ol sinner like me, uncle Tommy would say. He talked about seeing God in the beauty around us, in this beautiful earth he created for us to enjoy. If you want to see God look across this great countryside, no one can paint a picture like God can, Tommy would say. Thank you uncle Tommy for reminding me to see Beauty in everything God created for us. Have fun with my Daddy fishing for Trout and going over rapids in heavens trout streams. Love you~ Becky
