    Wanda~~I am sorry to hear of Tom’s passing. I became acquainted with him as the receptionist at the Sherrif’s Office. He was always pleasant and polite. I enjoyed our chats. As you adjust to his physical absence, I pray you will be aware of the strength and comfort God will provide.

    Tom was a friend of mine. I was very proud to have had him as a friend. He was a true hero and like the hero he was very humble and never bragged about what he had done. Rest in peace you deserve it!
