Hello Jon: Sorry about your father.
My sister sent me the link of his
obrituary. I never knew him, but
I can tell he was a good man because
he raised another good man like
yourself. I think he is resting in God's
hand now. Let his memories live in
your heart for always. Our regrets to you
and your entire family.

I have heard such kind things about Tom from his wonderful sister, my good friend Mary Hutton Walker. I'm sorry I never met him. If he was as close to wonderful as Mary, he was a great man.

Nancy, I have such fond memories of visiting with you and Tom and your children at Granny Marg's when I was little and later in Maryland. I remember the tall, kind man with great optimism and a great smile....And he remained kind and optimistic even as his health began to decline. May all of your wonderful memories comfort you and your family in the coming days. See you Friday.
