Thad and I grew up as neighbors and friends. Since his family always called him Brother, I did not realize until we began school together that his real name was Thad.  Thad always brought fun and laughter to my life and since he also delivered our newspaper, my Father enjoyed conversations with Thad when he came to collect each month. May our Heavenly Angels now enjoy all the laugher that Thad shared with so many of our lives.

Love Forever dear Friend!

Thad was s good friend in our high school and college years. I agree with Harriet that Thad had a very natural sense of humor and a caring attitude.  May he Rest In Peace. - Mary Hardin Phillips
