Memories Timeline


  1. One of the toughest boys/men I ever knew. From the time he was a little boy he had it rough and he never gave up. Tommy rest in peace and give your mom Aunt Bessie and Grandma Roxie a big hug. My dad John Will and mom Julia Mae (your mom Bessie’s sister) Johnson always talked very highly of you. Love you Tommy. Cousin Linda Johnson and Joe Scorsone.

  2. Love and prayers to Diana and family ❤️
    Tommy was such a kind, wonderful man. Many fond memories! Heaven gained sweet soul!

  3. Tommy was a very nice man. I put a metal roof on his home several years ago, and became friends with Tommy and Diana. They were very nice to me and good people. My thoughts and prayers are with Tommy, Diana and all his loved ones.

  4. Tommy, Hadn’t seen you in a while, but I always asked Nancy how you were!! I know you are in a better place! No more meds, hospitals, oxygen or hoses. You are free from all of that, Thank the Lord! Now is the hard times start in for your loved ones that miss you terribly, and weren’t ready at all, to say good bye. So whatever you liked, made, talked about with them, let it shine thru, so they know you are with them!! 💓💗💞
