Sorry for your loss. I remember first meeting Tom teaching 3rd and 4th graders at church. Such a strong and gentle man with very firm handshake.

So sad to here this! This man became my friend in Israel when we traveled as a group. “Hello Sunshine” was how he greeted me and was always so kind. Kindled a friendship between him and his wife. Sad to see you not here but now your amens will be loud for the Lord.

Dad, I never knew a kinder gentler man. You gave everything that you had to see that we lived as good as you did. We didn’t know that we weren’t millionaires. You worked so hard, every day and never complained because you had found the perfect mate in mom. I miss our daily conversations and you always knew my voice when your health was failing. You never ended a conversation without expressing your love. God is so lucky to have you. Make sure and get things in order for mom, she will be with you forever when it is time. Be assured that she is doing God’s work and he will take care of her until then. Love you Dad.
