    Tommy was my step father but that was only a label. Tommy was my dad my father and grandfather to my children. Tommy was a very patient man.He came into my life when i was a teenager so he had to be. Tommy but his career on hold as a truck driver so i could pursue that career. Tommy rarely if at all thought of himself. Tommy did eventually start a career as a truck driver and as short lived as it was he loved it. Tommy loved to cook be it cheesecake or some pasta dish he threw together. It was his passion along with his love for his wife his family and the Lord. Dad you will me missed and loved always shall you rest in peace in the arms of the Lord our God .Until i see you again .

    Your Son – Brian

    Tommy and Rose are our very close friends . I was at their wedding 23 years ago. They have been so instrumental in our prison ministry by providing us with a place to stay after I retired and we moved to the country. Without them we could not have been able to do what we know God has called us to do. Tommy you will always be in our hearts and minds as a great man of God. We sat for hours listening and being amazed at his insight and knowledge of the word of God. It was his passion . We will be there for Rose as you both have been there for us.

    Tommy we will miss you so much. I was at Rose and Tommys wedding 23 years ago. He married my best friend. Rose and Tommy was such a blessing to us by opening up their home to us and providing a place for us to stay after I retired and we moved away. Without them we could not have been able to continue the work God called us to do in the prison ministry. They were and are a real part of our ministry. Our fondest memories of Tommy was listing and talking about God together. His knowledge and insight was amazing. He was a precious man of God who will be remembered always.
