    I was sorry to hear about Tommy’s passing. Tommy and I worked together at the jail for many years and were good friends, we passed many a afternoon fishing out of his boat at Cedar Key.
    I unfortunately lost contact with Tommy when I left the jail and went to work for the Sheriffs Office, this however did not keep me from thinking about him on occasion and laughing to myself when I remembered some of the things we had gotten into.

    Tommy will be missed.
