    We are just heartbroken, and are very sorry for your loss. T.C. has been a friend of ours since 1997. Ms. Mary we had the pleasure of meeting you when T.C got sick years ago. All he ever talked about was Tara & Quinn, and how well they were doing. His girls were his pride and joy. Outside of computer work, like myself T.C. enjoyed photography. He also worked at FCI Texarkana’s Federal Prison with us as a contract Computer Teacher, and he gave so much of himself in teaching others. Teaching was his passion. We will miss his sense of humor, smile, professionalism and friendship. May God give you all comfort in your time of sorrow is our prayer. If you need anything call or text to 903-701-2273.

    To the Carr Family – My family offer our condolence on the loss of your father, son, and brother. Thomas was a good friend of the Trotter/Reed Family in Ashdown, AR for more years than I care to remember. He was always there to offer an encouraging word and/or to just sit and catch up on what was happening with family members. In this time of sorrow, please remember – For the Lord does not abandon anyone forever. Though he brings grief, he also shows compassion according to the greatness of his unfailing love.” (NLT) Lamentations 3:22-26; 31-32. Good people pass away; the godly often die before their time. But no one seems to care or wonder why. No one seems to understand that God is protecting them from the evil to come. For those who follow godly paths will rest in peace when they die..
    We will keep you in our prayers.

    I would like to express my sincere condolences to the family of T.C. He was like a little brother to me and we had many conversations about life and his love for his family. I always respected his insightful morals, values, and good-home training. He was always a gentleman and respectful. Although I haven’t seen T.C. in quite a few years, I will always have fond memories and miss T.C.

    It was a shock to open the obituaries this mroning and see TC’s face was the first one on the page. I haven’t seen him in a while but knew him thru my brother and he worked on my computer. He was definitely an honest person and had a beautiful spirit. I’m thankful our paths did cross and to have known a person of his character. My sincere and heartfelt condolonces to the family. It is so true that we never know when our last encounter will be with someone so it should always be positive and nothing we regret.

    My condolence to the family of T. C. he will be missed. T C was so soft spoken and had patience beyond understanding with me and my computer problems. He was interesting and I enjoyed our conversation. May God melodies from heaven rain down on your family during this time. May the Lord give your family peace and know that T C is resting and he is at peace.

    What moves through me is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch, we do not understand why he left this earth so soon, or why he left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, I begin to remember not just that he died, but that he lived. And that his life gave us all memories too beautiful to forget.

    I am deeply saddened by your loss. I will cherish the memories of the times T.C. and I spent together. May the grace of God help you during this difficult time, and may the peace which comes from the memories of love shared comfort you now and in the days ahead.

    A very dear friend,

TC was a very special man who touched the hearts of many people with his outstanding character, warm personality, and grand sense of humor. I was so blessed to have him in my life.

I know that your world is just as empty as mine without him, but I pray that God will comfort us and guide us through this difficult time. You have been a wonderful friend to him through the years, and for that I am beyond grateful. Thank you for praying for us, but please know that we are praying for you as well.

    William, it was so good to see you today but I am still reeling in shock that our TC is gone. So many wonderful memories of all of us together at Spanish Trace. I am absolutely grief stricken at our loss but happy to know he is in a beautiful place and pain free.

    Tara and Quinn,
    Your dad loved you more than anything in this world. Every time I saw him he would pull out his pictures and tell how well you girls are doing and how proud he was of you both. I remember when you were both born and it’s hard to believe so many years have gone by.

    Know that your dad was deeply loved and I am so sorry I just learned of his passing. If you need anything at all, please let me know.

    Sincerely,
    Lisa Phillips Zach

I want you to know that even though through out these years we didn’t keep in touch very well, I have always loved Tom.

He is part of our little Fayetteville family circle. I pray that God helps you through this grieving process.

    To the family, I send prayers because you have lost a great man. He was a wonderful father figure to those who needs one, and also an excellent counselor. I was told that God only takes the best ,so I did not see his passing a sad thing but as time to rejoice. Because he was one of the best of the best to even make it to the Kingdom of Heaven. I was also told that God does not make mistakes ,so I knew this was for the best.
