  1. Mrs.Bass, Kathy and Laurie,
    I am so sorry for your loss. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

  2. Shirley, You and Tom were two of the kindest people we knew. Tom was quiet and kind. Tom worked with him at CF & I and said he was a joy to work with. The two of you were so close so we know you will miss him “much”. Our sympathy and love to you and your children.

  3. I am so sorry to hear of Uncle Tommy’s passing. My thoughts & prayers are with all of you. Love, Betty Lynn
