Tom and I shared blood. The blood of Christ Jesus our Savior. We served under fire in Vietnam, but the fire that changed us was the fire of the Holy Spirit: " ... begotten again into a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven ... "
Farewell, brother Tom. See you on the other side.

Sending much love and many prayers for your loss. Grieving is a process I am still working through but know for sure our Lord's love never ends; His mercies never stop. They are new every morning! Condolences for the entire family. Muriel

One of the favorite things I loved most about my dad was his laugh! It was this perfect belly laugh that was so contagious, his cheeks would get all red and once he got started he just couldn’t stop laughing.
