My deepest condolences to the whole family. Tommy and I joined the Air Force together in Phoenix and then did basic training at Parks Air Force base. We then also got stationed together in Harlingen TX. After making a 25 year career, I also retired from USAF and currently live in California. I will always remember my good friend and buddy.

Please accept my condolences to the family during this difficult time. My Tio Tommy was very special to me and I loved him very much. He played at my retirement party and played at my mom’s funeral and I will miss him terribly. I want you to know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers. Those we love who pass away live on in us through our memories. Love you, Chata.
