With the assistance of WTCA and social media the public joined with law enforcement officers from various departments in Marshall County and the surrounding counties, county employees and some of Tom’s family to honor his strength in fighting a big battle with cancer.
Everyone gathered on the Marshall County Court House lawn with some participants bringing their own candles and other grabbing up those provided. The attendance was so great, there weren’t enough candles for everyone.
As those gathered shared the light from candle to candle a pastor from the Plymouth Missionary Church led everyone in prayer and invited anyone else present to say a prayer for Tom and his family. Prayers were offered for protection, guidance and for a watchful eye over Tom. Following the prayers everyone joined together singing Amazing Grace.
