    THE DASH
    I read of a man who stood to speak at the funeral of a friend. He referred to the dates on her casket from beginning to the end. He noted that first came the date of her birth and spoke of the following date with tears, but he said what mattered most of all was the dash between those years. For that dash represents all the time that she spent alive on earth and now only those who loved her know what that little line is worth.
    For it matters not, how much we own, the cars, the house, the cash,
    What matters is how we live and love and how we spend our dash.
    So think about this long and hard; Are there things you would like to change?
    For you never know how much time is left that can still be rearranged.
    If we could just slow down enough to consider what is true and real
    and always try to understand the way other people feel.
    And be less quick to anger and show appreciation more
    and love the people in our lives like we have never loved before.
    If we treat each other with respect and more often wear a smile,
    Remembering that this special dash might only last a little while.
    So when your eulogy is being read with your life’s actions to rehash…
    Would you be proud of the things they say about how you spent your dash?

  • So so sorry for your loss. You and the family are in our thoughts and prayers. I hope you find comfort in the fact that Tom made a difference in the lives of everyone he met. He will be missed by many. God Bless.

  • To the Ice Family- My deepest sympathies for your loss. Prayers and thoughts for you all during this difficult time.

  • Dear Pam and Family: It was our honor and pleasure to know Tom. He welcomed us to Ohio when we moved from Hawai’i. He was never loss for words to say at any moment in time. He made us feel comfortable and made us feel like we were long lost friends. We will miss his laughter and his thoughts and ideas. And his friendship until we meet again,

  • So sorry to hear of Tom’s passing. We will always remember that twinkle in his eye and his gentle sense of humor. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

  • Dear Pam and Family,

    I have been living in Columbus….I was at Goldie’s tonight and she had the computer up on obituaries and I saw Tom’s obituary. I am so sorry and sad of Tom’s passing. It sounds like this was so sudden….I would have been their if I knew. Pam I would love to see you sometime….Your children in the video are all grown up. Beautiful grand kids. Tom most certainly was very out going and always had a smile. I can remember him coming in for blood pressure checks and they were always high. I used to lecture him but he never listened to me or Dr.Ogle. I truly am sorry for your loss. Pam I would like to see you. My phone number is 419-496-6453…When things settle down please call me and I will come see you. Love you, Debbie
