Eric and Katherine, so sorry to hear about your loss. Tommy was one of the BEST persons that I ever worked with.
He was the definition of Professional. May God be with you both in this time of healing.

Thomas McDonald family--We had the privilege of knowing Tom from 1968 thru the careers in the grocery business. He set the standard for so many things for our group and our company.

He is with Nancy and awaiting his family and friends to join him when the time rolls around.

A Southern Gentlemen with so much love for his family and friends and company associates.

What great memories so many have of this Southern Gentlemen and I am in the front of the line.

I'm heartbroken for the family, hearing of Tommy's passing. He loved them so much, but we rejoice that he is reunited with Nancy in heaven.
I always looked up to Tommy, personally and professionally and hope to leave just a portion of his legacy when I depart this earth.
God speed good and faithful servant!

I loved Tommy so....one of the kindest, most sincere, dearest, encouraging men I've ever known. The world has lost one of the best--but heaven shines much brighter. And he is with "her"--his beloved Nancy. All is well.
