Dear Linda, Stacy, Tommy, Eric,
I always felt like I knew Tom through you, Linda and Stacy. And on the few times that I was with Tom, he really made me feel welcome. He was a fun person. How lucky you all were to have such a person to call honey, and DAD. You will continue to be in our prayers. Bob feels as I do that we lost a good friend.
Linda, Please call me when you need a listener.
With deepest condolences, Betty & Bob S.

Thinking of you and your family as you go through this most difficult time. We met just once on your trip to New York and I was so impressed with his genuine spirit. He was a one in a million person of great integrity.

Dear Linda, Eric, Tommy, Stacey,
Our deepest sympathy goes out to you from both of us. Since Tom assended to heaven to be with our Lord, Jesus Christ, we reflected our good time together when we lived in Georgetown South. He was very instrumental in helping me turn Georgetown South to be a better place to live. Tom always had my back during the hard times there. That is the kind of guy he was to us and others.
We can still remeber is jolly laugh although the years have past sense seeing all of you. Our prayers go out to each one of you during this time of a large void in your life. Take care of yourselves.
