Knew Tommy first from Roberts Avenue Methodist Church and I worked in the nursery. Always a kind person and loved his family. Later friendship renewed after he was married to Kay and she had developed some health issues. To his family, you have my prayers and sympathy knowing he is at peace and resting with our precious savior.
