Thank you dad for all you have given me. Wisdom, love, patience, and the ability to know when it's the right time to use each of these traits. If not for you blessing me with these things, my life would not be what it is today. Thank you and I can not wait to see you again!! Until then I will accept just having you in my heart. I dearly love you.

You shared a love and kindness that we all should have. You will be greatly missed. May God comfort those who knew you and feel empty. May he fill their hearts with the love and kindness you shared.

This is a wonderful tribute to a man I only met once, but saw the kindness in him, and how it was passed on through his loving family.

Sophie nods her head

Shared by Teresa Goolsby on August 9, 2010

Me and Pappy were sitting out on the deck waiting on T.J. and Mammy to make our dinner. Sophie my schnauzer was sitting in one of  the chairs across from us. She had just been groomed and trimmed. So Pappy said how pretty she was and i asked her Sophie are you beautiful and she nods her head 2 or 3 times. We laughed so hard and asked her again and she nods her head again. This time we laugh till we cried. I will always here his wheezy laugh it is the one thing i remember most about him.

A light in the sky

Shared by sheryl knox on August 8, 2010

A phone call to the Funnel Cake Company many years ago, a flight to Tennessee and then Tommy in my driveway in California with a funnel cake trailer.  After a couple of days of hands on training in the driveway on how to operate the trailer and cook cakes Tommy said you are ready gal, go get em.  Things seemed simple initially but then turned crazy dealing with the Los Angeles Health Dept.  Tears and frustration on the phone with Tommy, I came so close to giving up but Tommy kept telling me I could do it and yes 11+ years later I am still doing it.

Tommy will always be in my heart and there will continue to be times when I wonder just what am I doing but will always hear Tommy saying" you can do it gal".  Every event is a challenge and the balloon festival was no different but the challenges were overcome this time because Tommy was there as my strength just as he has been at so many other times.  We were so busy but did manage to get this picture.  Each balloon is unique as are you so this glow was dedicated to you Tommy  to celebrate your life.  You will continue to glow in many hearts for years to come.

Love you,

The Funnel Cake Lady

Grateful. Very grateful

Shared by Jamie Goolsby on July 26, 2010

I just wanted to let everyone know what a great dad "Pappy" was. As time passes since he left us, I find myself feeling like part of me is gone. He was such a great person. I am happy to have shared his love with so many other kids as we grew up. You see, he was not only my dad, but many kids looked up to him as a father figure. He wanted all kids to know that no matter what their family situation, they had a dad. He would give anything he had to make a kids life better. I am amazed at how much he cared. Truly, cared. I never knew how much of an effect he had on other people that I grew up with till now. It makes me so proud to hear people say how much they loved him for things he did 30 years ago. I couldn't have asked for a better dad. He was the best and I am very grateful to have been his son. I will miss him more than words can express but I rest easy knowing that he is probably in heaven treating one more Son as his own.
