    Jan, I was saddened to hear of Tommy’s passing. I’ve known him almost my entire life, milking for us and working at Co-op. He was always smiling and laughing. He will be greatly missed by so many. He was truly one of a kind. A man that never met a stranger and would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. My prayers are with you and the entire family to comfort y’all through this difficult time.
