To the Teasley family, Thomas will always hold a special place in my thoughts; he was always playing jokes on me. One time, he placed artificial bunches of flowers in my yard while I was on vacation and then told me that he saw a large van dropping off these flowers. He always had a joke and a smile whenever you saw him. May your family always keep the many happy memories you have of Thomas throughout the years. You will be in our thoughts and prayers. May God hold each of you in His hands. Denise and Mike Bowling
