Keeping you in my prayers. Mr and Mrs Wright were my neighbors for 17 years. From late seventies to early nineties. Mr Wright was sweet loving man. I know he will be dearly missed. The Carter family.

My relation to Bro Tommy as his minister while he was active at Cross Church he was a very faithful follower of Jesus. Tommy was proud to have served his country during WWII. I recall him wearing his WWII cap to let everyone know he served with pride. He was always in Bible Study in our small group and he was always present when we had Bible Study at Providence Assisted Living in Springdale. He ran a good race and now in the presents of our Lord.
We will see you later.
