Mr. Tom was a friend and brother in Christ to me. I held in the highest regards of any person I ever met. Knowing his testimony, he has for sure reached his eternal home with his Lord and Savior. Mr. Tom, farewell for now, but we will meet again some glad morning. Thanks for all the visits and prayers we had together during our sicknesses.
Mary- our deepest sympathy in the loss of Tom. Even though we never got to meet you in person, we knew you through Tom. We were his Duke football seat mates for many years and heard all about you. He was a wonderful person and the most proud husband, Father, and Grandfather (and now Great Grandfather) – we’ll miss him dearly.
Mr. Tom was one of my Sunday school teachers when grew up in Hales Chapel Baptist Church. I loved him dearly. His Godly character influenced my life. He life will live on
Mary Lee, I am so sorry to hear about Tom. I did not know that he was sick. He was a such a blessing to all that knew him. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
I love you….Rachel Piper Smith
