Tom was a great neighbor. We will miss seeing him and Buddy sitting on the porch as we walk by and watching them go by on their golf cart rides. We always enjoyed visiting with Tom. He will be missed.

Tom always had a smile on his face. I think back to a time when we went out to eat Mexican Food on Friday nights and we so much enjoyed his company. He was a great man and a great friend. He will be missed

I will always cherish the "remember when stories" Uncle Tom and I would share on his porch looking out over the lake. We would laugh and laugh and shed a few tears. I love Uncle Tom and his family dearly.
