Tommy, I can see you smiling and jumping for joy in the presence of the One who died for us .. Jesus Christ. It was great to visit with you and Mae for those weeks at Chic-Filet on Thursday mornings, glad I had the opportunity to do that. I remember how you always requested my Asparagus Casserole at Homecomings. Know that I will make one in honor of you this year as you dine at the great supper table of the Lord. Butch and Mae please know that Lamar and I love you all. Tommy will be greatly missed here on Earth but in Heaven he is rejoicing and having a reunion with Brenda. May strength and peace be given you from our Lord Jesus. You are in our prayers and we send our love. Brenda & Lamar
