    Tommy and I grew up together in Erwin, I being a year older. Last saw him some 30 plus years ago on Fayetteville Street at lunch time in downtown Raleigh. He was a good childhood friend, and I send his family my sincere sympathy upon his passing.

    Tommy was my cousin on the Barbour side of our family. I knew
    him, his Mother, Aunt Evaleigh and Dad, Uncle Ernest. So many
    wonderful memories. He was a dear friend, growing up in the little
    town of Erwin. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family as
    they go through this great loss. Love you Tommy.
