  2. Aunt Bev and Uncle Wynn
    RIP. Tom
    We will always remember you walking through our door just to visit awhile. Will miss our phone calls and love the songs you wrote. Especially Back Home on Grandpa’s Farm.
    Our deepest sympathies to your lovely wife, Faye, family and friends.
  3. Uncle Frank and Aunt Suds Kyger
    I will always remember Tom when he sang two special songs. One at our Kyger reunion in honor of his grandparents Russell and Mabel Kyger and their farm in Horseshoe. The second one was at his Mother's  funeral remembering the times she prayed for Tom. Tom was special and always stopped by our home when in the area to visit with his uncle Frank and aunt Suds.
