I just saw the obituary in the online Daily Journal for Tommy. I am so sorry to learn of his death. I had not seen him since he was a very young man, but always enjoyed being around him. He was funny and witty and always seemed kind. I especially want to extend my condolences to Debbie and her family since she's the sister of my daughter in law, Dianna. I'm sure you will all miss Tommy terribly. 1002

I am sorry to hear of Tommy's passing. I have great memories of him and Jimmy growing up. With Big Jim and my Dad, Pada Weaver, working at Tousley together and all the coon hunting, we spent a lot of time together. I am sorry for your loss. He will surely be missed.
