I have never known a kinder, sweeter, gentler man.  I could write an essay on the positive influences he had on my life and the happy memories that reside in my heart.  I am truely blessed to have known Tommy and his family and extremely blessed that I loved him and he loved me back.  His contageous laugh will always be etched in my mind.  I truely ache for the family at the loss of this wonderful wonderful man!  My daughter, Stacy told me last night, "Tommy is now Tommy again".  He is in Heaven kicking up  gold dust and waiting to welcome those of us that love him so.     April

To all of Tommy's family. He was truly a great man and a fine example of what a respectable human being should be like. Not only was he a great grandfather to our children Tyler and Dustin but a great father in law. Sorry I was out of town during the funeral but you have been in my prayers. I know Tommy will live forever in all our hearts and memories. Thanks for your service to our country Tommy. Love you always, Robin
