Obituary written by his great uncle, John Houston Palmer, Jr.; published in a Mills County, Texas newspaper.

"Died, May 22, at Mobeetie, Texas, Tommy Palmer, infant son of Thomas and Jennie Palmer, aged one year, four months and sixteen days. He died from wounds received during the fearful cyclone that passed through the town on May 1, bringing death and suffering to so many people, and was one of the six who lost their lives by that awful visitation. Being their only child, the parents feel their loss very deeply; but they have the blessed consolation that God has taken this little one to join the innumerable host of white robed cherubs gathered from every nation, kindred, tongue and people, who have never know the withering blight of sin. 'He was, and is not, for God took him away.' May his pure little life seen here but for a little while be a continual call from God to 'come up higher' and dwell with him."
--Uncle Johnny
