Kershanea and Alex I know your grandfather was an amazing man. You will keep his memory alive by sharing his stories and telling others about how Tom created special moments in your lives. He will now be your guardian angel and watch after you where ever you go. Look for the pennies from heaven. He will send you signs he is near and still loving your family.

Pat, I am so sorry to hear of your husband's passing. May you find the peace that surpasses all understanding in the arms of our loving Jesus Christ. You may not remember Robert and I from UE but I worked with you in the Igleheart building in the Development/Alumni office. You and your family will be in our thoughts and prayers...

Mr. Yeager was a great, very kind man. I can remember spending nights at the house with Cindy and he was always so kind. He will be missed. Love to the whole family. My deepest sympathies go out to all of you.
