    I have known Tommy since he was a little kid out at Sun n Surf when he won the little Mr. Sun n Surf contest. He was so cute then and still was so cute. He would always come in at the Legion and sit down next to me and give me a hug and he called me Pama Lam. I will miss him so much. And I send my prayers and condolences to his whole family. May he Rest in Peace.

    The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I lack. In green pastures he makes me lie down; to still waters he leads me; he restores my soul, He guides me along right paths for the sake of his name. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff comfort me. Psalms 23
