Irene, I'm so sorry to hear about Tom. I have only the fondest memories of him during our summers in Weyburn. He was always so generous and kind. I'll also never forget the love he showed to Gramma and Grampa whilst they were in Weyburn and after they moved back to Ontario. I know how much Tom meant to them. You're in my thoughts and all my prayers, Irene. I hope your memories can bring you comfort during this time-and that you surround yourself with love. We're sending much your way.

God will link the broken chain,
As one by one we meet again.
In our hearts he will always stay,
Loved and remembered every day.
