Tommy was a great man, always a joy to be around at work, he will be deeply missed! Prayers for the family!


Stan and Sally Bennett posted on 12/12/16

Sally and I met the Law family at a Bluegrass Festival in Gaston Indiana about 30 ears ago. Tommy was a 17 year old boy full of music, fun and laughter and we loved him form the minute we talked to him. Over the years we would see the Family at Bean Blossom or Green Acres music parks and Tommy was always very cordial and fun to be around. This tragic ending to his life is hard to comprehend but the family can rest assured that he is playing music in the Lords great band. Talmage, Betty, Seth, Aaron, Tina, and Tammy and all of the family you have our sincerest sympathy at this sorrowful time. God bless and keep you you all in his loving arms. Stan and Sally

I would like to express my deepest and most heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Tommy. Tommy was loving, caring, compassionate and very talented, he had a great sense of humor and had one of the funniest chuckles I've ever heard, he was the type of person that would go out of his way to help you, he loved to help, that's just who he was! When working with him, I have had the privilege to talk to Tommy for hours at a time, laughing and joking when watching our production lines.. we also talked throughout some of our toughest times as well, he was a great listener and even though he was younger than me he taught me a few things about life. Tommy was one of the most unique individuals that I have ever met, he was truly one of a kind.. a loving father, a hard worker and a very good man! It is hard for me to express in words the pain that I am feeling about the loss of Tommy, at the moment all I feel is sadness and anger.. I want to thank the entire Law family for raising such a wonderful man and allowing him to be a part of all our lives, I know that we are all better people due to his friendship! May He Rest Peacefully.

Was sadden to hear about Tommy. Our heartfelt condolences and prayers for the entire family????????


Janet Law posted on 12/11/16

No man will ever walk this earth that cared more about his son, his family and his friends which was just about anyone Tom met. He had a heart bigger than most and let everyone know that he cared about them. I am Seth's mother and Tom's ex-wife. I still occasionally got one of his bear hugs. I wish that I and everyone else could have another. God, please take care of Tom like he has taken care of so many here on earth.


Angie (Zink) Skinner and Family posted on 12/10/16

Hey everyone. I am so so sorry. This is so sad. Growing up down the road from you guys are such great memories of mine. Tom was like a brother to me and I will always remember him that way. Always joking around and making everyone feel so welcome. I know my Mom will be taking care of him in Heaven. :(
