That last picture of Hammy and Paul says it all. I was told he was a great friend and a good partner to him. Thank you for your insight and the memories...

Rest well, Hammy~~~~~~~~~

It was great to see the pictures of Tom. He truly has been a friend to everyone he met and made a positive impact on their lives. He always made one feel welcomed, important, and happy. The world will be a little more empty without him in it. My condolences to the family, you will be in my prayers as well.

I didn't know Hammy but from all of the great pictures he looked like a fun guy to be around, I would take him fishing in a minute. God speed.

I thought I'd post up what Ashley had found out about the funeral...

"Funeral Arrangements for my Daddy,
Visitation at Phillips-Robinson Funeral Home 2707 Gallatin Rd Nashville 37216 on Sunday February 16 from 2-8 and on Monday, February 17 at The First Baptist Church of Tullahoma, 108 E. Grundy St. Tullahoma, TN 37388, from 12-2 with the service at 2pm."

I'll be attending and will print out what great things have been said about our friend to give to the family.

Thanks Marge.

It was nice to sign the Guestbook, even if I couldn't be there in person.

This is so sad and surprising to hear. My condolences to his family.

I got the pleasure of meeting Tom at the Laticrete/Mud course in Dallas in 2010. I see Marge snuck a pic of us taking it in.

He was definitely a likeable and outgoing guy. This forum certainly won't be the same without him.

Very sad to hear this.

I had the chance to talk on the phone to Hammy several times and also to finally meet him at Coverings in Atlanta last year.

My condolences to his family.

I've printed out our posts to give to the family. Hope no one has any objections to that. I believe someone has sent flowers on behalf of the forum, I'll try to get a shot of that toady at the visitation.
