    Deepest sympathy for the loss of your dad. I worked with him for years in ward police department and others areas of ward. He always was smiling and joking.

    Tommy was the first officer to ever pull me over. It was the first time my mom let me drive alone and she sent me to get gas. Well I left the gas cap on the bumper, and Tommy pulled me over to let me know that my cap was on the bumper. Well I was scared to death. I thought I was in big trouble and this was my first time out without my mom. Tommy you will be greatly missed, I will always remember you.
