To the Vandergriff Family:
We can never express our thanks for knowing such a lovely family and sharing the early Arlington years with South Davis Elementary, Arlington High School, ASC and UTA. Our children even shared the same pediatrician our beloved Dr. Robert L. Moore.
Our daughter spent many fun days at the Vandergriff house with Valrie. Your father and mother were always the same, so compassionate and sincere.
The Memorial Service was so well done, he would be so proud of you.
Prayerfully,
Jim & Becky Garrett

Tom, you not only were Mr. Arlington to so many of us, you were the Father of Arlington just as George Washington was the Father of the United States. You put Arlington, Texas, on the map and nearly all by yourself made it what it is today. Thanks for making my hometown a city recognized all over the country. You were a great man.

Tom Vandergriff really was a special man. When I was teaching 4th grade they were getting ready to close Seven Seas. Some of my kids were worried about what would happen to the animals, so I had them write to the mayor and ask him about them. A few days later I got a message to call the mayor's office. I did so at my next break. I was shocked that it wasn't a secretary who answered the phone, but Tom Vandergriff himself. He wanted to set up a visit. He came and talked to my class. He listened to each child attentively and answered them with the same respect he would a governor or a CEO. Just another day serving Arlington.
I'm just so glad that he got to see his Rangers in a World Series. He will be missed but remembered for all he did for Arlington. This was a man of class, a trait he obviously he passed on as seen in the way his family presented themselves at the memorial during their time of grief.
