Tomorrow is our second 4th of July without you. It is a great time to remember you and all of the great times we had on the 4th! I hope you are enjoying rib eye, potato salad, and buttercream frosting with your brother up there! Love, Jeni
Happy (early) birthday! I imagine that you can enjoy all of the rib eye, potatoes and frosting you want these days, so enjoy! Miss you very, very much Dad! Love, Jeni
We are missing you so much. Every time something happens, I think, "I have to tell Dad." Then I realize that you are gone. Now, I just have to tell you in Heaven. You were, and are, a great father and grandfather. The lessons you have taught all of us will live on long past your date of death. I miss you and I love you, Dad. Love, Jen
Hey Papa, it's Maya here. A day never goes by when I don't think about you. The other day I was talking to nana about how much I love to be right and she said "oh please, you sound like papa fighting with papa." I guess great minds think alike. I love and miss you so much. love you, love your show.
ps. Make it a great day!
Dad, I miss you so very much! Love you, Jen
Thinking of you fondly. Miss you every day! Love, Jeni

Maya's making you proud at tryouts! We miss you yelling, "Play your box not your goal!!!" Maya still remembers and is playing better than ever for you. We started saying PFP (Play for Papa). We love you and miss you. We will never forget you! Love, Jeni
God broke the mold when He made you. Miss you every minute of every day. Love you, Jeni

New Years Eve 2012. The last day of the last year we were able to hear your voice and see your smile. Earth will be more poor for your loss in 2013. Conversely, Heaven is far more wealthy... Love you, Love your show.... Jeni
Merry Christmas. I know you were celebrating right along with us. I love you and miss you so much! Love, Jeni
Merry Chistmas Dad. Love Ben, Kyla, Kinsley and Jack.
We are missing you every minute of every day. You added so much to our lives so it is impossible not to miss you. Rest in Peace Dad. Love, Jeni
No one will ever fill your shoes. You were compassionate and loving to all, forgiving to those who deserved it and those who didn't, optimistic whether warranted or not, loyal to a fault, funny, smart,grateful, humble, hardworking, and wise beyond words. You are and were the best father and papa I have ever known. Your legacy, personally and professionally, is incomparable and well deserved. I miss you so much today and always. Love, Jeni
Tom was such a cornerstone in the recovery community. His light will be missed. Much love to Melinda, and his many children and grandchildren.
Melinda I am so sorry for your loss. I just heard about Tom's passing. He was a great man and will be missed by all. You all are in my thoughts and prayers.
Thinking of you today and how much we all miss and love you. I am looking at all of the pictures from the the 70's until now. They are awesome. Strangely, I remember all of them being taken and all of the great memories that surround each picture. I miss you! Love, Jeni
We buried you yesterday with full military honors and then had a beautiful memorial with your family and friends. I know you were there and loved every minute of it. I love you and I miss you so much! Love, Jeni
I will remember Tom as I did as a child when Melinda used to watch me after school. He was always smiling and was always a wonderful loving father and husband to his family! I know he is and forever will be carried on by the memories and cherished moments everyone who knew him spent with him!
Tom meant so much to so many people and play a big part in changing my world. He will never be forgotten. He will live on with many clean and sober individuals that traveled through Progress House, from staff, clients and all the contractors. Tom will be missed.
Tom is my dad, my friend, my companion, my confidant, my hero. He is the Papa to my kids. He is a true inspiration to me in how to live and how to view the world. I love him him with all of my heart and I know he is watching down onall of us now and forever. I love you dad! Make it a good day!!! Jeni
A true & faithful fan at all of his Grandchildrens events, and on behalf of all the kids friends & parents we send our condolences . His kindness to everyone , and ability to live life, and not get down attitude served as a fine example . It's true today we truly have lost one of the best. He will be missed,but never forgotten.

Tom was/is my brother-in-law, married to my sister Melinda for 45 years. Tom was such a giving, generous person all throughout his life. He loved Melinda, his kids, and his grandkids the most. Then came his many friends, and then came his work in recovery. He was dedicated to helping others. Tom will be missed.
Thanks for the memories and your help. Tom will always be my angel....
I knew Tom in high school and he was a great guy. Somewhere I heard he had gone into sales and I thought that was appropriate as he was a born salesman.
