Condolence & Memory Journal

Tommy and I worked together in the Electric Shop 51 and in Planning and Estimating for many years and were friends. His passing saddens me greatly. Although I had not seen Tommy recently I will always remember our good times picking on each other. He is a great man and loved the Lord. See you later Tommy.
