I was acquainted with Tom in high school and have fond memories of those days. We became reacquainted after I started attending First Christian Church in 1988. It was always a pleasure to see Tom on Sunday mornings. His knowledge of the Bible was astounding! I will miss him. He faced his difficulties with courage, and I know he has found peace in the loving presence of our Lord.

I met Tom at FCC about four years ago. He was a wonderful person and I am sincerely sorry for your loss. Although we often spoke just before/after church service, I never knew much about him. As I read his obituary, I realized I lost a great opportunity to learn more about someone who had done so much. Without any doubt, he will hear the Master say, "Well done, good and faithful servant." Well done, indeed. Rest in peace, Tom.

Carolyn
To you and your family I send my deep condolences. Tom was indeed a pleasure! What a joy it was when he was able to be in services at FCC. Yesterday when announcing Tom's passing, Rev. Rick spoke of his high regard for Tom and Tom's in depth knowledge of the Word and his faithful relationship with our Lord, Jesus Christ.
Perhaps I will see you at his services.
God bless,
Marlene
