Not sure what to say?

Cindy, Adam and Noah,
You had an amazing husband and father. I was blessed to work with Tom at Coca-Cola. He had this way of making everyone laugh. He was always sending us links to videos we had to see or telling us what good places to eat you all found over the weekend and the not so good ones. During my fight with cancer he was always there to offer a hug, a prayer and a shoulder. Tom loved everyone. He was very caring. He loved his family very much. I will always remember what a...

I will miss you my friend.

Cindy, Adam, and Noah - My heart goes out to you all. Tom was a great friend. I became friends with and got to know Tom through my time working at Coca-Cola. I'll miss our chats together and just having fun joking around with our co-workers. Our departments were right next to each other so we got to chat often. Tom was a great encourager of others and had a great sense of humor. He was one of the few co-workers at Coca-Cola that I could talk to about God and life. We would often keep...

Rest in peace dear friend. You will be missed deeply. Your friends always and forever...The Grayes Family.

Cindy Adam Noah, I was so saddened to hear of your loss. Tom & I worked together briefly selling RV's. We had so much fun trying to learn about RV's. I remember showing him how to drive one. We went on a test drive down 301, and the sun was in his eyes, I said put the sun visor down and when he did water went all over him, there was a leak. We laughed about that several times. At first I think he thought I did it on purpose. Also, Tom suggested that we all get together in the mornings in...

Cindy - I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Tom. I have known Tom since High School, and kept in touch throughout the years. He was a great person. My condolences go out to you and his entire family. I will continue to pray for peace and strength for you all. He is your guardian angel in heaven. Tom will be missed.

I met Tom in 10th grade and we helped each other get through Ms. Brewster's biology class, He introduced me to his various Tomisms. According to Tom, on Labor Day it was the "Jerry Lewis Telephone". I called him Scrugnibus--some teacher must have undoubtedly been teaching us about omnibus spending bills -- and he called me frizz head. Then there was what must have been his catch all tongue in cheek reference, the infamous "Duhmouth". We secretly plotted to abscond...

Cindy, Adam, and Noah - Tom was a remarkable man. He brought smiles to everyone with his wonderful personality. We worked together at Coke and discovered that we also went to high school together. Although we didn't know each other back then, we did have some common friends. At work Tom was always willing to help me out when I had no idea where else to turn. He was a wiz on the computer! Most importantly we discovered that we both loved the Lord. He was the best example of a christian man! He...

Please know my thoughts and prayers are with Tom and your family. He just joined my team a few months ago at work and I had not had the opportunity to meet him in person but know what a great asset he was to The Coca-Cola Company.
