Dear Mitz (I still remember how Tom fondly talked of you),

I was shocked and deeply saddened to learn of Tom's passing. Your loss is shared by the so very many people lucky enough to have known him. He was like the big brother I never had, but (unlike me) he was a true gentleman.

I've often reflected on how our paths crossed after Northwestern, starting from UPenn and me at Rutgers, Yale and me at UCONN, and UK and me in TN.

What a privilege it has been to know you two, from before you began dating in Bob's lab at Northwestern! What a journey! I'm just so sorry it had to end.

May God grant you the strength to cope with his loss and the wisdom to know how to continue on. His memory will live on in everyone who was blessed with his being.

With deepest sympathy,

Mike and Janis Miyamoto

Dear Mitzi,
We were saddened to read of the loss of Tom. I still remember you both from Northwestern many years ago. Our deepest sympathy to you and your family.

Tom taught Comparative Anatomy at Gannon University prior to his graduation. He was an inspiration which led me to become a high school biology teacher. I will remember him in my daily prayers.

DEAR MITZI: IN TODAY'S MAIL I RECEIVED A NEWSLETTER FROM GANNON UNIVERSITY AND WAS SHOCKED TO READ TOM'S NAME IN THE "IN MEMORIAM" SECTION OF THAT NEWSLETTER. THAT PROMPTED ME TO GO ON LINE WHICH VERIFIED THE NEWS WHICH MUST NOT HAVE APPEARED IN THE ERIE NEWSPAPERS. JULY 20 WOULD HAVE BEEN JIM AND MY 56TH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY AND JIM HAS BEEN GONE FOR VERY CLOSE TO TEN YEARS NOW. HE AND I HAD SUCH FOND MEMORIES OF TOM AND TRULY ENJOYED EVERY VISIT YOU TWO MADE TO ERIE OVER THE YEARS AND WERE ALWAYS GRATEFUL FOR THE PHONE CALL HOPING WE COULD JOIN YOU TWO AND BILL AND MARIA FOR A DINNER. I NEVER GOT AROUND TO SAYING THANKS FOR A COPY OF THE BOOK TOM SENT AND WILL CHERISH IT NOW MORE THAN EVER. PLEASE BE STRONG, MITZI AND KNOW THAT TOM IS IN A BETTER PLACE NOT HAVING HAD TO SUFFER AND BE GRATEFUL FOR YOUR CHILDREN WHO WILL BE YOUR SUPPORT AS WELL AS SO MANY FRIENDS WHO SIGNED THE GUEST BOOK EXPRESSING THEIR LOVE FOR BOTH YOU AND TOM AS YOU MOVED FROM PLACE TO PLACE. GOD BLESS YOU AND MAY TOM REST IN PEACE.

LOVE, JOAN SCHAAF
