My husband Buddy & I (Audrey Yelvington) worked with Tom for several years at J&W Repair. He was both funny and sassy. Also kind and generous. Also worked with his wife Becky and grew to love her.

Thank you Tom for taking Cole under your wing when Cole joined the O'Reilly's family. Cole loved you and admired you. I appreciate your patience and understanding of Cole. He will miss you very much.

Tom never let me down. That is something you can't say of everyone. On more than one occasion he picked me up when I was down or stessed. Tom always helped me when I needed him. I will miss him.
