To family and friends of Tommy Ward. I am so sorry for your loss! He was part of that good old Wisner playground crew! A "happy go lucky" type of guy as I recall. Lots of good times and memories with no shortage of friends. May he rest in peace with our Lord and Savior.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow. My thoughts and prayers are with Doris and Sherry. I remember Tommy playing baseball and softball many years at Wisner. Tommy spent many years coaching and raising money for all the teams at Wisner. We were all thankful for his time and dedication to the N.O.R.D. programs. Rest in peace my friend.
