  3. I can’t say I knew Mr Tommy well but I can tell the quality of the man just by knowing the kids he and his sweet wife raised into outstanding adults! That doesn’t happen by accident! I am honored to call them my friends.


  4. So sorry to hear of Mr. Herod’s passing. Worked with him in the MSNG. I was in Jackson and traveled to Camp McCain many times to work with him. A professional in many ways and a pleasure to have known him for many years.

  6. Annice and family, So sorry for your loss. I’m remembering his hunting and fishing trips with Fisher. Fisher and I loved him-such a great nephew. Praying for comfort.
