Tom was a good man, and glad I got to know him.

To paraphrase: sorrow comes in the evening, but joy in the morning. We will all meet again in Heaven some day and what a wonderful reunion. Until then, you are pain free & have your eternal rest.

Glenda Marsh

Dear Becky, may this time be a celebration of Tom's life, and may you find comfort in the words and love of friends and family. So glad we had a chance to meet Tom and to know you as a couple. So glad we are Christians and have the hope of seeing all of our loved ones again. With Deepest Sympathy, Nancy and Alan
