Papa Tom will be sorely missed among the market community. His genuine warmth for everyone that came to his market "window" helped build the farmers markets in New Orleans. Lucille, I hope the respect and admiration we have for Papa Tom and for you can be felt over the miles along with our gratitude for the time we were able to spend with you on many market days....My thoughts are with you at this time.

We are so very sorry to learn of Papa Tom's death. In New Orleans at the Farmers Market community, he pumped so many good spirits into our efforts during those early days (even organizing the Jambalya for Jim with that incredible rig). Our hearts go out to Lucile and the rest of the family. Thinking of you, Bonnie and Richard

When Papa Tom used to come to the Baton Rouge Farmers Market, we always loved to sample his cornbread and talk with him. He was such a nice man and we will always remember him every time we use his spice and eat corn bread. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.

Dear Bonnecaze Family,
A prayer for tomorrow,

God, however we understand you, we come before you today – just as we are.
Some of us broken, some strong, some angry, some at peace;
We come to you with our pain – our unanswered questions, our longings, our shattered dreams and hopes.
We are so grateful for our understanding that you are a God who joins us in our suffering – a God who understands grief because you have experienced it.
So it is with confidence that we pause and know that you have heard all our spoken and unspoken words today – you have heard the silent sobs and the loud screams – nothing is unobserved – or unnoticed by you.
So – according to our ability today – Father God, we reach out to you and each other – with trembling hands and wavering faith, with many doubts and countless questions – WE ASK YOU TO JOIN US IN OUR JOURNEY !!!
To give your strength – to bestow your compassion – to reveal your light in the midst of our darkness and to help us remember to rebuild and to go on.
Today we cry out – We do have faith
With your grace, your mercy, your spirit – Help us to have more.
Our Sincere Sympathy in your loss today.

With a life so large now missing, it will take time to see this through. I know that he is and will be in everyone's heart forever.
