  • Dear Patty, Mary and his beloved family he leaves behind. I was shocked to hear the passing of Tommy. We are never truly prepared to lose our loved one, it’s the hardest thing to come to grips with, but oh how I smile when reading Tommy had a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. That means he wanted his name added into the lambs book of life, to have the assurance of a eternal home, as Gods word tells us in John 3:16. May our precious savior surround you all with so much love, comfort, and peace that will surpass all understanding that reminds us in Philippians 4:7
    The Peace Of God, Which Surpasses All Understanding, Will Guard Your Hearts And Minds Through Christ Jesus: Philippians 4:7
