I've known T.L. most of my life as he worked for my grandfather and uncles at Church Lumber Company along with his dad and brother. T. L was always kind, gentle and had a reassuring smile. He was a hardworking man who knew and preformed his trade well. He loved the Lord, his family and church and that's about as good as it gets in life. It was my honor to have known him and I appreciate his support and dedication to the Church family through the years.

Our family loved TL. He was a part of our Church family. He worked at Church Lumber Company for as long as I can remember. He loved my children and they loved him. Our prayers for the family. Linda Church

Bro. T L was such a kind person and had such a heart of love for people. He will be terribly missed by all of us who loved him so much. I know he is at the throne already seeing Jesus face to face, dancing and praising the Lord! Our Prayers go out to all of his family.
