I’m so sorry we missed the wake yesterday. Tom, as we knew him was a wonderfully sweet man. He lived a very full life, be it too short. He and Judy befriended my parents Harry and Dorothy Beezhold a long time ago when Tom worked at Kinny Printing with my dad. Both couples had a place at Gun Lake and spent many special days together. Even with the later life changes to Cedar Lake and Victorian Village they kept in touch. The last time we saw Tom and Judy was at my fathers funeral October last year, he was 98. Yes, an age difference but that’s what made their friendship so special to us. Praying for Judy and his whole family. He will be missed.
Love, the Beezhold family❤️
