    Wood, Turner and Moulin family,

    We are so sorry for your loss. I will always remember Tom and Alice taking all of us to Gulf Shores for our senior spring break. We shared a lot of good laughs with Tom. He was all about family and a very generous man. I hope all the wonderful memories get you through this difficult time. God Bless!

    Love,
    Tommie & Angie

    Dear Alice, We are so sorry to hear of Tom’s passing. He was such a kind and pleasant person and
    neighbor. I will always remember how he volunteered his help when he saw me trimming underneath
    the trees in the field across from our house, by brush hogging the whole field for me. I couldn’t thank
    him enough for the beautiful job he did. I remember his trains and the new years eve party at your
    house where I showed him how to fix something on his computer. He was so grateful. We couldn’t
    have had better neighbors. What good people. We missed you when you moved. God bless you and
    comfort you and your family. Love, Janice Blank
