Tom Haar was one of the loveliest men I've ever met. I married into the family but was welcomed and loved as if I were born into it. He had a dignity that was obvious to anyone who ever met him. I loved him and I grieve along with his children and grand children. Rest in the Arms of our Lord, Dear Tom. I know you have been welcomed into heaven where Marie has been waiting for you. I will miss you.
