I am so sorry to hear of Tom's passing. I (recently retired) was one of Tom's tool & equipment supplier representatives. For nearly 4 years I had the great pleasure of working with Tom and, I hope, helping him to be successful in that business. As my office was in my home, I would usually get a cup of coffee and fire up the computer about 6 AM, many times to the phone ringing with Tom on the other end, bright eyed & bushy tailed! I so enjoyed our conversations, many of which would wander off topic, but non the less leave a smile on my face.
May your faith, family and friends help you and especially Betty through this most difficult time. Peace be with you.

Mike and I are so sorry that Uncle Tom is no longer here on earth with us all. He was a romantic soul with a kind and generous heart. I specifically remember him giving Aunt Betty a strand of pearls one time and I thought it was so romantic! May the love and comfort of friends and family sustain you all as you mourn your dad. He will be missed.
