  7. Tommy I have so many fond memories of our childhood like running through the water sprinklers together going to San Antonio with our families. We yelled yeah east yeah west as the adults were trying to decide which way to go. Going to Panhanle was very special to go to the show and go to church. You were not only my double cousin but my best friend The time that you Cindy Robyn and Chris lived in Arlington left us some great memories for our families . I will be looking forward to seeing you again soon I love you and your family so much.

  8. Thinking of you Cindy. Although it’s been awhile since we worked together, I recognized Tom right away. May you and your family be comforted by all your sweet memories of him.

  9. Tommy, your birth one month after your Daddy, Ike & my brother, Jerry were killed in a boating accident , helped the entire family live & continue on with life. You were a very happy, cute baby. You have been a joy for me & I have always admired your ambition. Loved your barbecue that you always served with a smile. I remember you &Mary Jo sitting on our front porch in Kress, giggling about our dog Jack’s wise knot. He would grab the front wheel of the little red wagon & take off across the pasture with you or Mary Jo in the wagon. I’m so very sad that you had to feel bad for so long, but you have no pain now & got to meet your Daddy for the first time. Save me a place up there & hug my Viki for me!!!

  10. Prayers for your family. May they remember all the sweet memories.
