    My heartfelt condolences to the Boone family. Thomas and I attended Lakewood Elm and Willard Jr High schools together. I will always remember that big smile and kind nature. He always kept the peace when we were in school cutting up, he was the person who would say “come on y’all stop, y’all not getting me in trouble lol. Although I hadn’t seen Thomas in many years, I knew he did well in life. My you RIH my brother.
