    Tommie was a kind, loving, honest man who will be dearly missed. He was a friend to all. Burnelle, you were his rock and our hearts and prayers are with you and all the family.

  2. Doug & Dianna Swain

    I was very fortunate to have gotten to “reknow” my father after all those years. I wish I could have been closer and visited more often. But he will always have a part of my heart and I will keep him in mine. Burnelle, if you need anything, you have our number and so does Judy. I grieve with all of you. Love and prayers,

  3. April Pickell Williams
