    We were saddened to hear of his passing. We thoroughly enjoyed being around and camping with Tommy and Diane. Always looked forward to seeing him. Prayers for the family in the days to come.

    I was so sorry to hear of your loss. I remember growing up at Pauline and Tommy was always there with a smile on his face. Prayers for strength and comfort.

    Tommy, I am going to miss you. I pray for your family, friends and loved ones. You have been a good friend throughout the years, not just to me and my family, but to everyone you met. I know, without a doubt, that you are rejoicing with our Lord and Savior and hugging Diane so tight. With much love, Charlotte.

    Tommy was one of the first people I met when I moved to Monticello. That was 45 years & everytime I was around him he was always the same, smiling, cheerful, happy, comical and very caring. It was a pleasure to have him for a friend and I will surely miss him. I will be praying that “ GOD will give his family peace that passes all understanding”
  10. Linda Strrickland
    May Tommy Rest in Peace. To Tommy's Family and Friends words can't erase the pain of loosing a love one. But know my thoughts, Prayers and love are with you all.
  11. John & Paige Stell
    You are all in our thoughts and prayers during the days ahead. Mr. Tommy was a special part of our family too. The day we moved in on Cottonwood he stopped and asked “Do you have water yet?” We didn’t but in just a short time we did. It was several years later that we realized he made the calls to get it turned on when we were renewing our contract with Barkada Water. He was always willing to help and definitely made things happen. All our boys loved him but our two little boys probably were able to spend the most time with him. He will be missed by so many and definitely by our family.
    We love you all,
    John, Paige, Brad, Jake, Jared, Jayson, Colt, & Brayden
  12. Wilmot & Thelma Green
