Sending Our Condolences

Thomas F. Sims, who was a founding member of the Knoxville Chapter of ALA, passed away in May at the age of 80. He worked as the Legal Administrator for Hodges, Doughty & Carson, PLLC, in Knoxville, Tennessee, until his retirement in 2007. Our thoughts are with his family, friends and former colleagues. Donations in Sims’s memory can be made to Samaritan’s Purse or the Summer Feeding Program at Main Street Baptist Church in Lake City, Tennessee.
