Condolences left for Thomas Richard Sory:

    I know that his parents and family don't know me, my last name when I was involved with Tommy was Cummings. We were involved in the years of 1995 to 1996, it was short but was sweet. Tommy and I stayed best of friends even though I married later on. He will be missed by his friends here in Arkansas...
