We are so very sorry to all the family of Tommy for your great loss. My husband and I both knew and loved Tommy. I (Anita McCurry) met Tommy when I served as an officer for the Abbeville City P.D. many years ago. Tommy's smile and laughter never failed to lift my spirit and bring a smile to my face. It was privilege to have been a friend of Tommy, but more so, it was an honor to have been accepted as a friend by Tommy. Anita and Bill McCurry

Dear Caroline and all the family, Tommy made a big impression on everyone who ever met him. He is part of all my memories of home and what our hometown really is - a small town with a place for everyone. Tommy made our hometown a friendly place, a better place - may all our lives have as much meaning as his; he will be sorely missed.
