    Please accept our sympathize for your loss. We had the pleasure of going to Ranger High School with both Tommy and Billy, and had a wonderful time with a group from our class about 4 yrs ago in their beautiful home in Waco. Jerry and I both feel blessed to have known them and take comfort knowing that they are together with the Lord.
