Cathy, Noah, Cole, Myrtle, Michael, David:
It has been easy to see what a good man Tom was by meeting and getting to know him and all of you. He always had a friendly smile and a lot of kind words to everyone I saw him with, including me. He was very energetic in a very laid back way and had a very positive attitude about life that was easy to feel. I thank him and Myrtle for their service to our country and can only imagine and appreciate how hard they had to work to raise such a fine family. He has set an excellent example of being a good grandfather for me and I feel blessed to have known your husband, father and grandfather. May God's blessings continue to be heaped on your family.
