Loyal Friend

Tommy is a loyal lifelong friend to my parents and the Ballard kids.  Tommy would always come visit us. I especially enjoy all the memories of Tommy visiting us  at Christmas.  I loved playing pinochle with him and my parents.  Christmas memories growing up had Tommy being there with us.  Tommy always loved the Ballard kids and always knew how to make us feel welcome and laugh with us.  Tommy will be missed and he is now in our Heavenly Fathers hands.
