  • Shy, Tommy, Matt,and Megan, You have my deepest sympathy. Tommy was such a wonderful friend for many years. We first worked for Tommy and Ed in the 70's at what would be "Deepwoods". I remember walking with Tommy, of course drinking McDonald's coffee, and measuring out the centerline of the new development road. Soon he became a friend, a fishing buddy and later on my woodworking mentor. I miss him terribly already. We all will. I'm so proud to have known Tommy and to have been able to call him my friend. He was indeed an incredible guy. Bill Yarnell
