    TE was always at the front of the church when I was a kid some 50+ years ago. His big but somewhat shy smile was inviting, his voice distinctive and his hand shake one would rarely forget. I’m sure you already have your arms around the family members that have gone before you. We will miss you big guy!!

    Thomas Earl and Sammie double dated with Guy Cain and me for a long time. We had such great memories together. My mother taught Thomas Earl in Elementary school. He really liked her and she felt the same about him. Thomas Earl was a good friend , and a good man. Everyone loved him.
