I can't believe it has been almost three months since your passing. I still miss you like crazy. You were a great friend and I'm glad we kept in touch after we both left Christchurch. I hope you are having a blast where ever you are xx
I knew Tom to be a caring, funny, smart, giving, hardworking and generous soul. I am happy to have known him albeit briefly. My condolences to all his family and friends.
I was terribly upset to hear of Tom's passing. He was a good friend and although we lost touch, I have many fond memories of him. Rest in peace, Tom. No more hurt, no more suffering. Such a gentle soul, too soon gone. --Tim (aka Miss (Mith;)) Fine)

So, Sorry to hear of Tom's passing. I graduated with him in 1988. God rest his soul and many condolences to his family.
Our thoughts and prayers and deepedt sympathy go out to Tom's entire family. We are neighbors acrossed the street from Tom's father, Vern. Tom always had a smile on his face. He was a very friendly man. He had a special way of tying a tie and shared that with our son several of times. He adored our pet Sophie(pot belly pig). He was always laughing at her and wanting one just like her. Tom will be greatly missed by us. We will miss his conversations. Please stay strong, Vern. Your neighbors, John and Sandy

Tom Schara will be missed. An intelligent and a gentle soul, he was sensitive to other people's needs and cared deeply for those who were close to him. Although he had a very serious side, Tom was not afraid to laugh at himself. He had an easy way of making people easy. My condolences to Tom's family. Blessed be, Tom and Godspeed!

OMG! Sorry to hear this. I didn't see Vern or Mary in the survivors listed. I'm assuming they have passed as well.? I don't get the paper, so only rarely do I see obits. Sorry.
Well, if you're listening Bonnie, you have all my sympathies! An old, but unfortunately a distant friend.
Sorry to hear about your son passing. Blessing to you and your family
