    So sad to hear this. Also sad that I will be unable to attend. I will miss seeing Tommy on Saturday mornings.

    One of my best friends. He taught me the ropes when it came to being a Church Service Coordinator. I remember counting $21,000 at his house after a FBCH service. Tommy took me to my doctor’s offices several times. I enjoyed learning about him and his family. It will take me a long time to get over Tommy’s death. I will miss seeing him at church each Sunday. I will say hi to him every time I walk past his pew. I will never forget how he ended each prayer “In Jesus’ name; Oh how I love you.” A true Gideon, Christian, and one of my best friends. I am praying for you, Faye, and mourning with you.

    It was a privilege to serve with Tommy encouraging fellow believers, new members and visitors at FBCH, also serving as Gideons while handing out God’s Word and witnessing to lost souls. Heart felt prayers for Faye and family members.

    As a Gideon in the Sumner East / Macon Camp, I had the privilege of seeing Tommy every Saturday morning for some great fellowship and prayer time together with our brothers. He was a true southern gentleman, a great encourager and strong Christian! He loved his family, kids and grandchildren, always telling us about them. and he really loved the Lord! Would always end his prayer with “thank you sweet Jesus…. oh how I love you!” Just a powerful prayer warrior and committed man of God. Just two Saturday’s ago, he and I had an opportunity to walk out to the parking lot together as we headed to our cars. He was just a great guy to speak with and always made you feel important and was a constant encouragement! Tommy leaves a strong legacy. As the Apostle Paul wrote….. he ran the race and finished strong! Praying for Faye and his family!

    his prayers with “I love you my sweet Jesus.

    Tommy and I have been friends since 1953. We worked at Sharps Drug Sore during our High
    School years. He was “Best Man” at my wedding to Sara in1960. We had a small group of friends that met for dinner once each month group included myself,,Wayne Holloway, Eddie Hill and sometimes my brother Dennie. Tommy is now resting in The Arms of our Saviour Lord Jesus Christ. He will be sorely missed. Faye we loved him as you do and will see him again.
