Rest in peace uncle Tom. Your work here is done. God looked down and saw you were ready so he said it’s time to come home. You were well loved by us all.

My dear Bro. Tom.
I thank the LORD for bringing you to our church about 6 years ago, along with Sweet precious Margie Roberts, Oliver Wade, Billy Grace, Little Billy Grace, & WD Smith, whom all changed our church with all of your talented guitar playing and singing, allowing me to sing and play piano and with ya’ll at our church but on Saturday nights at the Old Spanish Senior Center. What a blessing we had. Well, Bro. Tom our little church will never be the same. You & I became very close as we shared our love for music and the mad rushes we would make looking for a particular song or singer we had heard that touched our hearts. You were so generous in your time and constant expertise trying to teach me how to play. I always loved hearing all your stories of your being in the Air Forcr and you an Margie working a Fairchild. I only wish I could have met ya’ll 50 years ago. I could have gleaned so much from all of you. I guess you are almost the last one of the little group, but none of you could ever be replaced anyway. You and the rest will hold dear memories in my heart always until the LORD calls me to join ya’ll in HIS heavenly choir. Knowing you will be there, makes it easier to go on. I will see you soon, give my John and Margie & the others a hug for me. I know Mrs. Mary is so happy to,have you home and I for one am SO VERY GLAD, you are no longer in Pain “but all right for an old man”. I thank God you have reached your healing. And I thank you for being such a special friend to Harry & I.

We have known Tom since 1970’s. He was our Boss at Fairchild Hiller. He has been a friend for a long time. We often went to Mary’s kitchen to eat and enjoyed the conversations we shared together with him and all his other friends. All his friends at the Tropical Palm will miss him. Rest in Peace, Tom.
