Condolences

Uncle Tommy, although we never had the opportunity to get closer to one another; I will always respect you for the choice you made to serve this country. Because of people like you, I was born in a free country and had amazing opportunities to do all the things I wanted to do, to include serve this country as well. I am proud to be a part of a family that continues to serve this nation. In fact my son, Kevin Jr is also serving today. Thanks for all you did and for all the people's who's lives you touched while here on this earth. Rest Easy, Sir we'll take it from here.

I remember "Tommy" and "Betty (his sister) from the old days in Parkesburg.  Many of us would gather at the old baseball diamond at the park and venture throughout Parkesburg!!!!   He was "adventureous" and always up to something.... fun!   We all got along and had lots of good clean fun! I will always remenmber "Tommy" as a friend. We reconnected by social media a few years ago.  May he rest in peace and his family be comforted in the loss of one of Parkesburg's "old crew".   Rest in peace buddy.  (Bonnie Harris-Dickinson).
