Eccl. 7:1 A good name is better than good oil, and the day of death is better than the day of birth

May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.

My deepest sympathies to the family on your loss. There are no words that can ease the pain of losing someone so beloved. May you find comfort and peace in knowing that your loved one is in God's memory because those who pass on are precious in his eyes. (Psalms 116:15)

The joy of watching that Oklahoma Sooner was something to behold. The pro's was just icing on the cake. But not just the athlete, but the total man is what is important here. He had substance. He backed up what he believed in. He was good to and for others. He left a possitive mark everywhere he went. To lose giants like Tommy, tears a little piece of our heart out. With a sad heart I send out prayers to all of his family and for his memory.

Sorry for your loss he seemed like a nice man.

May the God of all peace bring comfort to the McDonald family and friends at this difficult time.
