It was a pleasure to get to know Tom at Serenity House. I enjoyed his card playing and talking to him about the trips he had taken. I will always think of him when I see someone playing cards. My deepest sympathy goes to his loved ones.

In Christ,

The vounteers and staff at Serenity House will always hold a special place in our hearts for Tom. We thank the family for allowing us to get to know him. He was a true southern gentleman, easy for us to grow very fond of. Tom would treat us by making his special biscuits. Miss his greeting me as I arrive at Serenity House.
