  • Georgia and Family,

    We were so sad to hear of Tom’s passing. Bonnie and I looked forward to when he would just call in and see how we were doing and how business was. I will hang on to the electric pencil sharpener and desk pen and business card holder he gave me when he left Craig Smith Auto Group. Craig also was sad to hear of Tom’s passing, he said he was a good man.

    Prayers for you and your family.
