    Dear Donna, Phyllis and Randy: I was so sorry to hear of Tommie’s passing. You may not know this but he was a big influence on me when he coached Pony League baseball. In fact, I consider him the best coach I ever had. He had a quiet presence that you can’t get with a lot of words. We played hard for you dad because we trusted him. He knew exactly what he was doing at all times; a legend really. I will always remember him building a rag tag team that nobody could beat. Rest In Peace Tommie. Well done coach!

      Thank you Mark for your kind words! One of my best memories of Dad was watching him coach baseball and watching the team win lots of games! Also remember all the late night trips to Sybil’s after the games for those Jumbo Cheeseburgers and Hot Fudge Sundays.
