Thomas Earl Algard, II, age 16, the beloved son of James Thomas "Bo" Algard and Leaquetta "Quettie" Frady Algard went home to his Lord and Savior on July 9, 2010. He passed peacefully while in the loving arms of his mother and father after a long battle with cancer. Though his time here was short, Tommy was an angel here on earth that touched the lives of everyone who knew him and will forever be remembered as the best hugger and a loyal Alabama fan from the moment of his birth – "Roll Tide". He had an infectious sense of humor, a smile for everyone, and loved the ladies! His early years at the Duluth ballpark playing baseball and later years supporting all his friends still playing were some of his favorite things in life, other than the hunt club, dad's softball games and of course every Alabama game that he could attend and there were quite a few of those! His disarming way of letting people know that he was "not sick – he had cancer" always softened the reality of his illness for those around him. The world lost a small hero today. He will be greeted in heaven by those who went before, grandparents, Thomas Earl Algard, Annette Algard Haney, William Glenn Haney; great-grandmother, Granny Hoyle; uncle, Paul Brueggemann. He will be waiting with open arms for those he leaves behind including his parents, Bo and Quettie; grandparents, Harold and Eloise Frady (Hun and Papaw); uncles, Jeff (Katrina) Algard, Hootie "Alan" (Pam) Frady, Johnny (Beverly) Frady, Bo "Jamie" Frady; aunts, Gwen (Brad) Hays, Pat Brueggemann, Amy (Kelly) Nations; special brothers, Josh and Nick; cousins, Shelly Little, Alexis Hays, Morgan and Jake Algard, Casey (Jihan) and Chaz Brueggemann, Garrett, Brier and Kinley Nations, Keith, Ott, Isabella Frady, Gabe Frady; and hundred of friends and everyone at Children's Healthcare Emory Aflac Cancer Center.

The family will receive friends Sunday, July 11th, from 2:00-4:00 and 6:00-8:00 p.m. at the funeral home.
