    Uncle Thomas was a great man. He was a father figure to Stanley and I. He would work on our vehicles when we were young. He will truly be missed by all that had the opportunity to know him. Rest in Heaven Uncle Thomas. We will always love and miss you!!

    I remember playing baseball for Mr. Shull and with Curtis years ago on the old Little League field between Robert E. Lee school and the tennis courts. We may not have been the best team in town but we sure had fun. I recall a kind, gentle, servant-hearted man. May he rest in peace, and may his family find comfort in fond memories and hope in the Lord.
