  1. I miss you already-the many laughs and talks we had-the times I would be in a hurry-and said”hold that thought-I’ll be back”-the cups of coffee we’d had and apple pies we enjoyed with melted cheese–even the one that fell on the floor-we ate that too! You’ll always be in my heart! Jo

  2. Billy & Jayne Sorry to hear about your Dad. I miss old friends, and don’t know what has happened to the years. Horace

  3. My Condolences to the Tomerlin Family. I am a previous employee of Dr. Carlos Orozco. My father is 79 years old and suffers with COPD. Since my father and Mr. Tomerlin were almost the same age, and suffered with the same illness, Mr. Tomerlin would always ask how my dad was. I always enjoyed when Mr. Tomerlin had his visits. He always had something nice to say about someone in his family. He was proud of his children and even prouder of his grandchildren. He was one of the nicest persons I know. I am sad and I will miss him.
