Sheri -

Wayne and I have such great memories of our fun times with you and Tom. Tom's sense of humor and quick wit always made us laugh! Remember how Wayne and Tom (and Dad!) were so competitive playing ping pong in the basement at Mom and Dad's (Bonsai!)? We could hear them all the way upstairs! Keep all those great memories close to your heart. Use them to brighten a sudden dark moment. We love you and will always be here for you.

Love, Judy

Uncle Tom,

I remember the times I would visit you and aunt Sheri in Chicago. We would have a lot of fun laughing and discussing different topics. You’ll be missed and you are loved by us all.

Dear Sherri,

I didn't know you, but I know your son Alex. You made a great son. He is one of my favorite friends on this Earth. Your grandkids are wonderful. I'm sure Henry will represent your name like a champ with integrity. You must have been a great father/grandfather for this to be true. Thank you for creating your son, Alex. Thanks, Eric Nitzsche.

To my Dearest Uncle "Tom" :
I will never forget your sweet, sense of humor and your kind, pleasant spirit that filled the room with joy and a bit of "mischievous". My memories of you mostly come from my youth, but you left a lasting touch deep in my heart. When I see the success and loving heart of your boys, I know that you are proud. I thank the Lord for the time I had with you so many years ago. I pray you are now at peace and that the Lord secures armies of angels to support those you left behind to endure the emptiness and grief that they surely are enduring as they put you to rest. I love you and rest in peace ! Say Hi to Grandma and Grandpa and Uncle Bill ...
"May the Road Rise up Meet You. May the Wind Be at Your Back, May the Sun Shine Warm Upon Your Face. And, Until We Meet Again, May the Lord Hold you in the Palm Of His Hand."
With heavy heart,
Janet Funk-Beusse
