    My sincere sympathy to the family for he loved all of you. I have heard him talk for hours about his boys and the love of his life Mrs Joy. My mind and heart flood with memories of the fun we had working at Citizens Bank on Cherokee Road and New Shackle Island. He was just the best to work with and eat chocolate. You were always the best if you brought chocolate. We all loved Tom and he loved us, if for no other reason, we all could cook and he would always eat what we cooked.
    Our love and prayers

    To Tom’s family, please accept my sincere condolences. Tom was a much loved member of our national, not-profit lending community.

God bless Tom’s family and friends, and we now rejoice through our tears that his pain is over and he is with our Lord. Prayers…

  10. David Young Parker says:

    I knew Tom when we were students together at David Lipscomb College (1959-1961). He was two years ahead of me.

    I grew up in Chattanooga.

    I graduated from Lipscomb in June 1963. I was a good friend of Bill Bryson and his wife June. I remember Joy very well.

    The memories of youth are long, long memories.

  11. Fernando says:

    A good financial plnenar will provide more value than he charged. Same with a doctor, a lawyer, an accountant, or a mechanic. Bloggers that say otherwise have neither the studies nor the experience to say otherwise. Most GOOD financial plnenar or consultants study for years to get their certifications or degrees. It takes 10 seconds to log in and whine about why they are all crooks . The internet is filled with crackpots.
