I'm so sorry for your loss, I didn't know Tommy personally but we work for the same company and I was so sorry to hear of the tragic accident. May God watch over all of his loved ones during this difficult time. Keep all the good memories close to your heart, sounds like he was a gentle soul.

I met Tommy through work last year and got to know him a little bit more day by day. He was and still is a very caring and loving man and father. He will be missed around here at work, and at home. My condolences and prayers go out to his family and friends. May he go "Rest High on That Mountain" with the Lord and watch over his family and friends. You will be missed by many Tommy.
