    We have known Tommy about 3 years and thought he was a great guy. We loved to here him play the organ at church. He was so dedicated to being there and playing the organ even when he hardly had the strength to sit up.
    I believe he heard our Lord say “Welcome Home, My Good and Faithful Servant”. We will miss him and his music.

    We enjoyed Tom in our painting classes and always loved his paintings of the area around his home and the family farm. He leaves us with good memories of our time together.
