Tom Ed was a shy and humble man but if you were ever privileged to be in church with him, you knew his love for the Lord.Anyone who knew him before he was born again knew something wonderful had happened to him that Saturday morning in his living room when he made things right with God. He was definitely a changed man and he wasn't ashamed to give God the glory for it.Every service he was in, he stood and proclaimed his love for God and his fellow man. Many times his testimony would be "I was a drunk for 15 years but the Lord saved me." Anytime during the week, you might get a call from him just to say, "How are you and I love you." He was a man of few words but touched many lives and he will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved him.
