My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. I’m sorry I won’t be able to attend the services. Fondest memory was when he took us snipe hunting! We never caught one! :)
Nancy Johnson says
Tom was a good man, husband, father and grandfather. We have remain good friends and loved each other. I will miss this man dearly. As with all of you he continued to call and keep in touch and was always concerned about how you were doing. I treasure our memories and the memories we made when he would come stay with us for an extended period of time while he healed and would get stronger. Faliesha, Alexis, Alivia, and Kian had those times to get to know their Grandpa. I am thankful for that time and although they could not be here to say good bye they were here in spirit. I encourage everyone to keep sharing your stories with each other. Tom’s memory will stay with all of us forever. I will miss you!
