I am so sorry for your loss! I have known Tommie for years, he played basketball with my brother with Anderson. Then we worked together. Tommie was a good hearted soul and the type of person that would make you laugh. He was a free spirt and cared for everyone. Tommie or Joyce didn't deserve this. He definitely will be missed. Joyce you done an amazing job raising a good man. Fly high Tommie. Rest easy and we all will meet again one day. RIP Tommie

I had the pleasure of meeting Tommie when I started working at IAF. He was a very funny and caring guy. He would ask me daily " where my cakes at, woman?" lol. I am glad to call him my friend and he will be greatly missed, not just by me, but everyone who was lucky enough to have met him. My deepest sympathy and prayers to his family.

I’m sorry for the lost of your love one and my dear friend. We all need comfort in these trying times. So remember we all can go to God and the scriptures in the Bible can help us. Such as found in 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 the God (Jehovah) of all comfort will comforts us in all our trials so that we may comfort others in their trials. So may you find peace during such circumstances. My love goes out to all family and friends.
