  3. Tom and I always had a battle of wits, who worked the hardest, who was the luckiest etc. I seldom won!!

  4. I want to offer my condolences to Thomas’ family and friends. Keep in mind
    the many fond memories you have of him. Also, pray to God for comfort.
    He wants us to trust in him when we need help. Prayer and your memories
    will help you to cope with the loss of this dear man.
    Psalm 62:8

  5. We are sad Tom passed away. He was a great brother-in-law. Our prayers go out to Barb and Steve. God bless Tom and his family.

  6. Barb and Steve,
    I am out of the country and just received an email from Cleo saying Uncle Tom had passed. I am so sorry for your loss. I am also sorry I didn’t find out before the service so I could have sent flowers. My mom would have wanted that. Blessings to you and your families as you walk through this difficult time.

    Love Cousin Carol
