  5. Ollie when I saw you at Homecoming, I had not idea that Tommy was ill. I am so sorry for you, Ray and the families loss. My prayers and thoughts are with you all during this time of grief.

  6. One of my favorite cousins. I can remember Old Zion Homecomings years ago when I would see Tommy and one of his sons, who was chewing tobacco just like tommy … age 6. Tommy was always friendly, smiling, kind and never in a rush. We should all have these traits.
