    Tommy was a blessing to all who knew him. He and his wife were so very kind to my aunt, Tressie Scott. We will always remember their many kindnesses. He will be missed.

    We are so sorry to hear about Tommy’s passing. He was such a nice person. He helped us many times over the passed 40 years. I know that he will be missed by many. My prayer is that God will give you all comfort.

    As a remarkable man in many ways, Bro. Tommy left a wonderful legacy that is cherished by his family, his many friends, his church family, and his community at large. His quiet strength, kindness, dedication, wisdom, dependability, and support of his church were attributes that served to bless all those who were privileged to know him. He wasn’t a big talker, but his actions reflected his love for people and for his Lord. We miss him. May God’s Word and His Holy Spirit (the “Comforter”) provide strength, comfort, and assurance to Bro. Tommy’s family and many friends.
