Tommy forever changed my life and will always be my Angel. I miss him so much and had hoped to have many more years together. I will miss him forever and hope to see him again in Heaven. He will not be forgotten.

Tommy will forever be known to me as pawpaw since my son Jacob Byrum gave him that name. Pawpaw always accepted me as family and never turnt his back on me these 16 years ive known him. He never met a stranger and always saw the best in people. He will be greatly missed.
