My heart goes out to Tommy's Family With deep sadness
Tommy was well known by many people. I believe all can say he was the same
every time you saw him a smile on his face cutting up about something.
He was my mailman a long time. I had him bring mail or packages to my door many
times. He did this to save me a trip in the rain or any bad weather.
He will be missed by many people I'm sure.
May God Bless his family and comfort them at this time. With love and respect.
