On behalf of the Karl Flusche Family:

Our hearts are saddened by the loss of Tom. He was such a wonderful man to be around and talk with. I know Karl loved hearing of his war stories over a good martini. To Jinx, Sally and family our prayers are with you during this difficult time. Please take comfort in knowing that Tom is having a blast with Don, Donnie, Karl and so many others who have passed before him.

Sending strength and prayers your way.

Marylyn and I are saddened to learn of Tom's death. I believe Tom & Jinx were among the first we met when we moved into the neighborhood and joined St. Pius in the early 60's. And we have cherished their ongoing friendship. We'll keep you in our prayers and may God's peace be with you.
