  • Carmen, Deanna and family, Lisa and family, TJ and family:
    My deepest sympathy to you with the passing of Spider. I have great memories of being a kid and hanging out with all of you, playing on the pinball machine in the basement, and sitting at the “formal” dining table with the red velvet seat cushions. I always felt so grown up sitting there! It seems like our families have been intertwined forever.
    He will most certainly be missed.

    Thinking of all of you…..

  • Carmen and Family,
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this most difficult time. So many good memories out here on Redbud due mainly to you and Tom’s friendship over the years.

  • I am so sorry to hear of Spider’s passing. He was always a good worker and friend to his co-worker here at the power plant.

  • It is with heavy heart that I am writing this note. Tom was a wonderful man. God lent him to us for 71 years where he spent most of his life sharing his love with you, Carmen, and his loving family. My prayers are with all of you. I regret that I am not there with you, but know that I am thinking of you. I pray for Tom’s soul, and that the good Lord give you all strength and peace.
    Love you, D
