Not sure what to say?

William D. J. Wallis

Tom threw me a long pass. We were playing football during a physical education class at Chatham High. He judged my speed, put the ball right into my hands, and I continued my unbroken stride. Then WHAM! I was slapped in the back on the shoulders by a defensive player and I did a complete forward flip. Landing back on my feet, I scampered into the end zone. I had dirt in my hair as a witness to the unplanned somersault.
Tom's skill made other people look good. His friendship made others...

COACH TOM, MY FRIEND, COACH, AND FATHER FIGURE TO ME, I WILL MISS YOU !!!!!
THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES AND GUIDANCE !!
LOVE YOU AND PAT ALWAYS !!!

I will miss you forever and cherish the memories.

In loving memory of a wonderful person. We will love you and miss you always.
