Condolence & Memory Journal

Tommy, Stacy and all,
No matter the hurt you feel right now, he is watching over all of you. Do not be sad, but look at the legacy he has left...everyone of you. He is a very good man. I use the word "is" because his spirit is inside each of you, especially Tommy. I know this pain, I had to make the decision to end my father's pain. I found peace because he did. Let TFC, Sr. do the same. Grieve, but do not dwell.God Bless you all. Kelly and Christy Cotner

"I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love." Leo Buscaglia

Hope these may be comforting words during your sorrow.

Tommy was one of my favorite guy friends in High School. We had a lot of classes together. He always had a smile & was
so nice to everyone. I'm so thankful I got to spend some time with Tommy and Mary Ann at the last reunion in August 2012. Tommy will truly be missed by the Class of "66" @ Terry Parker HS. My heart & prayers go out to Mary Ann and the family.
