I'll always remember "Haney" on his Harley with a long ponytail. He was always mellow and a "good guy". He will be missed by many!!

I am so sorry to hear of Tom's death, and at the same time rejoicing for his home-going. Tom used to work for dad back in his wilder days, and what a change Jesus brought into his life. I thank God for the man that He made Tom into. I didn't get to see Tom very often, but I thank God for Tom's life and the man he became. God bless you Shelia. You and the family are in our prayers.
