Tommy used to call me with great tips when I was an ag reporter at the A-J. And even after I left, he would call to stay in touch or offer his thoughts about what would make things better for farmers. It was a little more than a year ago when last he called. I enjoyed visiting with him. So today I was looking his number up to call him for a visit when I came upon his obit. I’m sad What a great man he was to know all these years. What a lot he did for farmers.

Within the last 3 or 4 years I was able to get to know Tommy. We had talked a lot about our family's . I remember every year he would come into the Hurst store in Lorenzo and bring me some Pecans for baking. Tommy was a very nice man, I enjoyed talking to him. I will miss that and seeing him coming into the store for a cup of coffee and always a nice smile.

I will always have a soft spot in my heart for Tommy. We fought many a Democratic battle together. He always could make me smile in the most difficult of moments. The world will be a little less bright without him

I only have the fondest of memories of Tommy. We fought some political battles together and he always brought a smile to the most difficult of situations. I haven't seen him in years---but just knowing he was 'out there' always made my day a little brighter. The world will be a little less without him around.
