    I think that Bradley S Cohen would have been proud to work with such a dedicated business owner. I hope that someone from his family will be able to step in and take over the responsibilities.

    He will be missed....Tommy taught me many things in to get to High Falls during a boring, hot school day.....what roads you could safely drive 140 to foul someone in a basketball game and get away with it....Tommy and Darrell were examples of people who enjoyed life.....I can not believe both are gone....

    R.I.P Tommy. You were a great merchant of Albertville. I bought shoes from you over the years. Have me a pair waiting at the pearly gates...[smile]

    Tommy was a very rare individual! He was the most talented artist in leather & footwear in the country! He could build a pair of shoes by a prescription. He could turn an old pair of shoes into showroom new. He was a true friend. He always took the time to talk, even if he was behind on his work. There will always be an empty spot where Tommy stood. My heart truly aches for his passing and his family's loss. I feel so blessed for having known him. He will be so missed.
