To the family of Tommy Bruce:
Phyllis and Gaither, I know you are so hurt and shocked by the passing of Tommy.  I had not seen him in years until seeing him  at church.  He looked so nice.  My heart breaks for you all but Pastor Stanton said he believed that Tommy  knew the Lord and what a blessing that is to know you will see him again.  I am so sorry I won't get to see you.  My daughter and family and I are flying to Texas to see my oldest granddaughter get married.  We leave on Wed of this week.  Please know that I am praying for you all and will be thinking of you during  this sad time.  Just know the church at Berea love you, Gaither, and Gary.
 Your friend, Jenny Ball Chapman - Taylorsville, NC
