T.J. understood the richness of the love of family. He truly believed he had the best family in the world. He was a master at making his family feel loved and gave them a safe and loving home all the days of his life. T.J. Flowers was a man of his word; he was kind; he was giving; he was a wonderful story-teller; and his quick and charming wit always brought a smile. He had a simple and genuine faith in God. He accepted Christ as his Savior at a young age, and lived a life of faithfulness knowing that his true home was eternal.
