I am blessed with many wonderful memories of Uncle Tom and Aunt Carol. There were fun times spent at their house with Toni and Joy after VBS at Woodside Baptist Church. I know my mom is welcoming Tom in joining her in Heaven. All my love, Cathy

Tom continually surprised everyone since Christmas of last year by fighting to live and spend more time with his family. I am glad all of you got that extra time. Now his fight is over and he is healthy in heaven and enjoying visiting again with friends and family already there. I remember him pulling us in the little trailer behind the lawn mower when we were little and teaching me to use the riding mower when I lost my own dad many years ago. Always willing to lend a helping hand to my mom as well when needed. I will miss seeing him on his mower in the yard as well as his quick smile and wit. Love, hugs and prayers to Carol, Toni, Joy and the family.

I am blessed that my daughter Tiffany married your Grandson Brock and now we share two/three beautiful grandchildren, Rylan and Rylee Mae and you have to share Cody’s daughter Madilynn with me. I’ll always remember the get togethers at your house and your famous”You look like you’ve put on some weight” comment. You always treated us all like family. I hear all the time from Your Boys, Brock and Cody how blessed they are to have had a man like you to raise them and they want to instill the same morals and values that you taught them on to their children, Rylan, Rylee Mae and Madilynn. You are a great man and I will, along with many others miss you and you will live on through Brock and Cody. They will make sure of that. Rest in Heaven Tom. You are so loved.

Tabitha Vermillion left a message on September 1, 2021:
There are no words great enough to describe this wonderful hero of a man. May God give His comfort in this time of grief and suffering, and hold His children's hands and walk with them through this difficult journey. Can you just imagine the unexplainable joy, being in the Kingdom of Heaven and reunited with loved ones?! I send my deepest condolences and endless prayers for healing. I love you, my family. I love you, Uncle Tom. I can't wait for my "special surprise" and I promise on my heart and soul to treasure it for my lifetime. Rest Easy in Heaven, Uncle Tom. Love, Tabitha Vermillion

We loved Mr. Vermillion and always enjoyed seeing him as he greeted us at Woodside. Always a hug, a smile, and a laugh. He made us feel so welcomed.
Michael Roberts left a message on September 1, 2021:
I am very sad to hear about Uncle Tom. I remember when he would come up for day trips to visit Charlie and Louise, always a kidder would have you on your toes and holding your stomach laughing with his wit and jokes. We may lose the people but there memories live on the stories we share they live on through us. Always welcome hearing the stories the memories they bring. If there is anything I can do to help don't hesitate.
