    What a wonderful man that touched the lives of so many. Please take comfort in knowing that it was never in God’s plans for us to acquire so much love and wisdom only to pass away. It’s no wonder that the Bible calls death an enemy, one that will be removed. (1 Corinthians 15:26 ) May you be there to welcome him back to a beautiful paradise earth that God has in store!

    Although I had not been a member of club le conte for over 10 years, he still recognized me and always had a warm welcome when I went to the club. Tommy was a fabulous ambassador for the club with his gracious personality and warm smile. May your wonderful memories help to ease the pain of losing such a loving and kind man.
