So sorry to hear about Tom. God bless him now for he is home!! He was a great person!! I remember him from Calvary Baptist Church in Stockton.



I am fortunate that I was given the opportunity to meet Tom, and I appreciate his passion to help homeless cats.



Tom was at our home very often during high school and college. He was like a big brother to me in those days. He was very talented and loved the LORD and His people. I have many fond memories. So glad he is with his Lord. Love, Pam Highfill Williams
