My deepest sympathy to Tom's family and friends in Tunkhannock. Tom's grandmother , Dora Mathias Kessler, was my grandmother's sister. Edna Mathias Evans. After my grandmother and grandfather, Frank Evans, passd away, our families lost touch. Once in a while I would run into Tom's mom, Doris , in Clarks Summit as she was filling racks with greeting cards. I remember when his brother Michael died. He was a teacher and so was I until my retirement. On at least two occasions I had someone stop me in a store and ask me if I was Andy Gruen.who I knew was one of Doris's sons. There must be some Mathias family resemblance.
Again, my deepest sympathy to Tom's family from the Evans family in Greenfield Township.
