II Timothy 4:7-8, I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.

|TJ was a good friend I always enjoyed his company and his stories. We would share stories about our son (who were both named Spencer) and came to realize that they acted a lot alike. TJ seemed to think it was the name. He always had a story, joke and a smile. We will remember him always. We had a great time the last time we saw him, it was great to see him with no worries for a few hours that night. Pam, Spencer and Alexis you guys are in our prayers and we are here for you all.|
|Tom, I was so sorrow to hear about T.J. I thought a lot of him. I know this will be hard for you and the family. I will be unable to attend the services, but I will be thinking about you all. Hang in there, and good luck.|
|I am sorry to hear of TJ's passing. TJ was a fantastic person
and a GREAT baseball coach. It was an honor to coach with
him. I will always cherish our state championship experience.

please let me know. I will keep all of you in my prayers. Beth
and I love you guys and will be here to help if you need
