Tommy was a childhood friend. He was always full of laughter. I have fond memories of him. He took me and my little brother to meet the wrestlers when he worked for WWF. He was a great guy with a genuine heart. My deepest prayers and condolences to his family and beautiful daughters who are his mirror image. SIP Tommy.
