Anniversary of Dads death bittersweet because I know he's got his right hand buddy with him and Mom
January 15, 2013
Loosing Tommy was like loosing not only a sibling but also like loosing a child. He was so special, but learning how much he influenced and how much he meant to so many friends we have heard from shows what a wonderful job my parents did in raising him and keeping him active in their lives. Love to you all

What I would have said yesterday, if I could have figured out a good way to say it…

To Tommy,
When I was way small, my folks told me I was ‘special' because I was adopted, ‘picked-out.' Then I met my cousin Blake. He had challenges I didn't understand. He didn't act like me, talk like me, or look like me. My folks told me, “he was ‘special.'” Then I remember, when I was 5 or 6 years old, meeting you, with your mom at my Papaw's (Mr. Marks') store. After y'all left, my dad told me that you were ‘special' too, kinda like Blake. I didn't put it all together for a time, but, I figured it out I guess. The best I've been able to tell, from then that is, y'all were the ‘chosen' ones, put here by God to teach us all the power of Love.

Thanks for helping me. Tell my dad hey!

I had the pleasure of working with Tommy for the past twenty years. His love for his family, friends, and staff members was felt by all who knew him. We will miss you Tommy....your smile warmed our hearts. RIP our friend.
