We are so sorry to learn of Tom's passing. We go back many years to when we both pastored in Ohio. Then we lived on the same street in Easley for many years when we pastored there. He and Miriam were wonderful neighbors, whom we loved dearly. May the family find comfort in knowing the God of all comfort, and look forward to that glorious reunion Heaven!
