  • Myra, Josh, Jamie and family,

    I am saddened to read about Tom’s passing. We had some interesting and enjoyable conversations over the years. He was very reliable to our Bible study group years ago when he made a big pot of coffee for us for our weekly meetings. The last time I saw him was at the veterinary clinic in Sunbury. He will be missed. I am thankful for his influence on my life and for his military service.

  • Myra & Family,

    My deepest sympathy goes out to you and the family. It’s just so hard to believe. Tom could put a smile on anyone’s face by just being around. I have many great memories that will be held dear to my heart forever. May God help you and the family in this very difficult time. God has received one really special Angel.

  • Our sympathy and condolences go out to family and friends. Tom was a classmate and childhood friend, that will not be forgotten. Until we meet again, in Gods glory, old buddy.

  • Josh so sorry for your loss may God give the comfort you & your family desire in this time. God Bless you all Tim & Vicky
