On behalf of all of us at J&L Glass, we are saddened to learn that Tom has passed away. We remember him as a polite and kind person who was willing to help any and all customers. He also loved to draw in the Autocad program, which is what he ventured on to do after retiring from J&L Glass. We send our condolences and thoughts and prayers to Debbie and the rest of his family.

I'm really sorry about Tom he was one of the nicest man I've met he was caring, always made me feel welcome when I stayed at their house. We would all work in the yard and I tried to help put pool together well I sit down they did it better without me. Also he loved Debbie soo much and loved animals. We really are going to miss him. Heaven gained an angel RIP MY FRIEND until we meet again. Lots of love!!

my love for Tom will always live on.

Tommy was my youngest cousin. He was born the year I graduated from high school. Fort Lauderdale, Florida is a long way from Atlanta. I and my five siblings were always excited to visit with our Florida cousins at their house or at ours. I remember Tommy as a cute and sweet little boy and as a handsome, sweet and soft-spoken adult. I am thankful for the most recent times I got to be with him at a family reunion in Atlanta and the time we celebrated Thanksgiving with his mother in Macon. I only wish it had been more.

Martha Bray Greenway, Atlanta, Georgia,

I was his closest sister as we were only 18 months apart we grew up doing everything together whether it be playing in the backyard are riding our tricycles when we were young. As we grew older we stayed very close and were always there for each other. I knew I could always call him and he was always there me and I was always there for him. I never imagined I would lose my sweet brother and best friend I miss him dearly everyday.

My brother Tom was the youngest child out of five children he was not only the youngest but the only boy. Tom was just sweetest one of all. Tom what is a kind and gentle man he was always good to everyone and was very much loved by all his friends and family.

My sincere condolences to the Child's family. It is awful to loose someone so young. Memories of our childhood have been with me this week. A fond mymory I have thought of over the years of Terri, Wendy, Tommy, Larry, Karen and myself playing Batman in the abandoned car. We made our own fun. Tommy you are a kind soul and will be sorely missed. Love you always.

I'm sorry for your loss. It is never easy to lose someone we love. The Bible gives a sure hope of a resurrection. The scripture found at Isaiah 25:8 tells us that one day soon God will put in end to death. Please visit jw.org for more comforting information on this subject.

My condolences to the family. May you find comfort in the scripture at Revelation 21:4 and the website jw. org.
