I want to extend my sincere sympathy to Tom's family during this time of loss. Tom and I were classmates and friends. When my wife and I would return home for a visit Tom could be counted on to come by and "catch up". We enjoyed those visits and appreciated the effort Tom made to continue our friendship. I have many fond memories of our school days together and especially of playing basketball with Tom. He could handle the ball very well! Tom was a gentle man but that did not mean weak...he could be counted on to back a buddy up when needed but never looked for trouble. That is saying a lot when you think about being teenage boys together in rural Indiana. I am glad to have had Tom as my friend and deeply regret his passing far too soon. We will pray that God will comfort all of those left behind and that each one of you will find strength and peace in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Staccia, Michael, & Marsha,
My thoughts and prayers are with the entire family during this difficult time for all of you. I am so sorry on the loss of your father. I am in FL for the winter and will not be able to come for the visitation or funeral. Tom is the same age as my wife Linda when she passed away last July. I fully understand the loss you feel. Say "Hi" to Natasha for me, I remember watching her play softball and basketball with Corinne, she was a very good player.
My Thoughts and Prayers are with you!
