Jim Baker
Very saddened to lose my good friend and brother in law. Tom. We spent many hours together playing golf and sharing in life's adventures. One of our favorite times was our trip to the Masters Golf Tournament in Augusta. Tim was a loyal friend and loved his family. He will be missed by all who lived him. My sincere condolences to Kim, Chris during these difficult days ahead. Uncle Jim
