Like Dorothy said to the Scarecrow in The Wizard of Oz..."I'm going to miss you most of all." I always wanted you to live forever, but your pain and suffering are gone now and you are in a better place...right next to God, I know it. He probably wants you to teach him how to sail. Words fail me when I try to think of what you meant to me, but I believe in my heart that you already know. My life has been blessed for you walking into it, and I will never, ever forget you.
Rest in peace my dear sweet friend. Meet you on the other side.
I love you,
I will miss your Dad dearly and I'm grateful for the friendship we shared. He was a mysterious, creative, strong willed and kind man. He greeted every bank teller, store clerk, receptionist, and nurse with a smile and friendly conversation. He was especially kind to my grandchildren. I can only dream of going fishing with him or sailing on the lake or seeing him create a piece of art. Sincerely, Teresa
Gail, I'm so glad your charming dad was so creative. You are one of his greatest creations. God bless him and Eric.
Gail, my wife (Tish) and I are sorry to hear of Tom's passing. We were
neighborhood friends with him several years ago and would spend time at his house and he at ours. His obituary lists him as creative, active and artistic. We can attest to that in the short time we knew him. Peace to you.-----Bobby Blackford (Owensboro, KY)
Our thoughts are with you over your loss. Tom enriched our family and myself especially. I will always cherish the time I spent with him. I consider myself fortunate to have called him a friend.
