I was blessed and grateful to have Tom as my friend for many years. I admired his love for the Lord and his unconditional love for his children. I will cherish all of our memories and will miss our conversations. I know he is happy now. See you on the other side someday, my friend.

Know that when someone departs from this earth, they never truly leave. For they are still in our hearts and minds. Through us they live on. Please accept my condolences and know that Tom will not be forgotten.
