Not sure what to say?

I have known Tommy for over 25 years. He put the pump in my house. We have been friends ever since. He was a good man but most importatky a Christian. He never missed an opportunity to tell anyone about his faith. He will be missed.

Emily, Tom, and family,
Our deepest sympathy to you in the loss of your Dad and Grandad. My Mother and Tommy's mother were friends from childhood. So Tommy and I have been good friends all our lives. I am deeply saddened by his death. Mary Jane and I are not able to get out to see you, but you are in our thoughts and prayers now and in the days to come. Our daughters, Malinda, Mary, and Martha, send their condolences to you also.
Sincerely,
Boyd and Mary Jane Sharp

I met tommy 20 years ago when I come to travis marine he was one of the finest people I have ever known I rebuilt the carburator on his studebaker convertable

I met Tommy probably 40 years ago when I needed some pump work. He did my pump/well work ever since. We quickly discovered that we were both Gideons, and we enjoyed sharing things about the Lord and life in general. Tommy was a good Christian, a good pump man, and a good person. I will miss his smile, his Studebakers, and his ability to get my water back on whenever I needed him.

I am sorry for your loss.I enjoyed talking to him at our Gideon meetings,he had great wisdom and will be greatly missed David and Jennie Eakes
