    Tom was one of the most loving, caring,giving person, he would give you the shirt on his back if it was the last one he had.I’m glad too have known Tom , he changed my life. Tom will be missed. Everytime I went on the hill he would have me laughing so hard I would piss in my pants.He never talked bad about noone he was always there to help anyone and I mean anyone.I’m praying for the family. RIP Tom till I see you again.

    Tom was a great friend to me. He will be missed dearly. Tom helped anyone he could. He provided food and shelter to several of my family members and only wanted to see them do good. His door was always open to anyone that truly was on rock bottom and needed help. He never once told me no when I needed his help. He was a true friend who never asked for anything in return. He will certainly be missed by so many of us. Rest In Peace my sweet friend until we meet again??
