    Mrs. Morgan, my thoughts and prayers are with you. I know that Mama has missed you both since you moved from here to Hendersonville.

    Ralph, David and Gerald, it was with sadness that I learned about your father. Please know that I always admired him. He was a good neighbor and a thoughtful person.

    May the Lord give each of you comfort during the this time and in the many days that follow.

    To the family
    I was sorry to read of your loss. Death is difficult to endure regardless of the age, however we can find comfort from God’s word the Bible. It tells us that soon all those in the memorial tomb will come out by means of a resurrection.(John 5:28, 29) Please lean on the God of all Comfort to help you during this difficult time.

    91 years, a lifetime of 3 boys, wife that was a heck of a good cook, work and fixing things for his church and others! A solid man that now is whole again and will be missed. RIP Tom, you were one of the good ones.

    Nancy, Ralph, David and Gerald, It was so sad to learn about Tom’s death. He was a dear friend to Charles and I and we shared lots of good times together. I guess he and Charles can celebrate their birthdays together in Heaven this year.
    I don’t have the words to say that will comfort you at this time, but just know that you are in my prayers.
    My sympathy, love and prayers,

    Nanna and Poppy Morgan ( Nancy and Tom) have been a part of my life since 1968. I grew up with them being a major member of my family life. They are my daughter’s God parents and grandparents to me and my sisters. Tom stepped in after my Dad was taken from us and took care of my Mother as if she were his daughter. I never worried about Mother knowing they were right next door and always looking out for her. My memories of Poppy are endless and my love for him as well. I am thankful God put us on this same path in life and gave us such angels to share it with us. I love you , Poppy, and will always remember that precious little grin and twinkle in your eye. Nanna, we love you so and are holding you close in our hearts and prayers. Gerald, David and Ralph you were blessed with a most wonderful Dad and role model. He loved you all and was always so proud of you. Sending our love and prayers to you all.
