Mrs. Acree, Ali & Lesley,
You and your families are in our thoughts and prayers.
Your family is in our thoughts and prayers at this time of sadness. Tom will be missed greatly by our industry. Home Builders Association of Middle Georgia
To Kay, Lesley and Ali I am so sorry for your loss. My thought and prayers go out to the Acree family.
Kay & Girls,
It was so good to hear Friday night's service for Tom was such a celebration of his life. It is easy to have great memories and stories about a man as good as Tom. I was at the state convention for NCHBA, and there was a lot of support and love shown for Tom there. Everyone remembers how much fun he has and how much he supports our industry.
Im so glad my family met Tom so we have some memories to share here, too. I feel like I know you because of Tom's stories and all the loving references he made to you "girls."
Tom told me to "be tough" once, when he thought I was behaving a bit too sympathetically for good business...but I never forgot it. He was a coach who knew how to get through to each member of his team. Tom wanted us to be tough, but we love him because he was so tender and devoted to his family, work and everything he did.
I know God is devoted to you all and called Tom home because He is so good and merciful. Peace be with each of you.
Dear Kay and family,
Tom was a special person. He cared for everyone he came in contact with and served God in helping and providing growth opportunities for others as he did for me in the early years of my career. He was a special friend and mentor. His humor, enthusiasm and positive outlook were always uplifting.
God bless all of you.
