I already miss our Tom so much. He will always be missed; Sunday School was not the same yesterday without him. He was so loved by everyone in our class at Calvary. I consider it such a blessing to have known such a wonderful, generous, loving person. Tom loved the Lord with all his heart and so many have been comforted knowing he is with his Savior. With much Love,

To the Edenfield family: God doesn't make 'em any finer than Tom Edenfield. In all the years I've known him, never did I see him in a bad mood or without a smile and a kind word. Always cordial and willing to invite me to lunch which we were able to do just a few months ago. He was as fine a jurist as he was a person too. We have all suffered a loss and we're the better off for his having come our way. Godspeed, Bill

Bill Edwards, Savannah, Georgia

Sharon Cook Redding, Savannah, GA

Judge Edenfield was a fair, compassionate, wise judge. Unfortunately or fortunately I have been in his courtroom where he gave wise counsel to young and old about driving responsibly, the problems with alcohol and getting help. He often gave the option of going to church or looking up the stories of crosses on the side of the road. He gave people time to get fine money when they needed it. His wisdom will be missed in our local court system. Praying for his family.

Vicki, Guyton, Ga

I am so sad to hear of Mr. Tom’s passing. He was a fine man - fair and just, and he will be missed. My deepest prayers and condolences, to Lynda and all of his family. Godspeed Mr. Tom.

My prayer is to your family for the strength of God to surround you and over shadow you.He was a man that truly LOVED his PASTOR. I am blessed to have known him.

He sat with my family at my mother's funeral 5 years ago. My sister & I dined with Tommy & Lynda at Johnny's just before they closed. Sending love & condolences to Lynda & family.

To the Edenfield family: God doesn't make 'em any finer than Tom Edenfield. In all the years I've known him, never did I see him in a bad mood or without a smile and a kind word. Always cordial and willing to invite me to lunch which we were able to do just a few months ago. He was as fine a jurist as he was a person too. We have all suffered a loss and we're the better off for his having come our way. Godspeed, Bill

Bill Edwards, Savannah, Georgia

Judge Edenfield was a fair, compassionate, wise judge. Unfortunately or fortunately I have been in his courtroom where he gave wise counsel to young and old about driving responsibly, the problems with alcohol and getting help. He often gave the option of going to church or looking up the stories of crosses on the side of the road. He gave people time to get fine money when they needed it. His wisdom will be missed in our local court system. Praying for his family.

I had the privilege of meeting Mr Edenfield a few years ago when I was in need of an attorney I prayed as to who I should call and the Lord spoke his name. The yellow pages help to find him,because I never heard of him before then. I found him to be a man who really cared about people he truly was a gentle giant. My prayer is to your family for the strength of God to surround you and over shadow you.He was a man that truly LOVED his PASTOR. I am blessed to have known him.

It's difficult to say just a few words about Tommy, as my family always called him. From my childhood as my swim team coach who also ate many Sundays dinner in our home... to a loyal adult friend, I always loved him for his gigantic heart & whimsical humor. He sat with my family at my mother's funeral 5 years ago. My sister & I dined with Tommy & Lynda at Johnny's just before they closed. Sending love & condolences to Lynda & family. Tommy will never be forgotten because of the impact he made on so many people's lives.
