    It was with profound sadness when I learned of Tommy’s passing. I can remember many great times with him playing basketball out on the driveway at their house in Stewartsville back in the 70s. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family. Let the memories flourish and remember all the good times. Tommy is free of pain and suffering as the Lord received him with open arms and hands God bless you all.
