Not sure what to say?

Audrie, I know this came so suddenly to you & your family, but I am sure Tom is not suffering anymore and is singing with the Angels in Heaven as I type this to you. I know you both liked to travel as Don & I do. We would have been at the service but we were on a cruise when Haley called us to let us know about Tom's passing. Please know that our prayers are with you & your family and hope to see you soon. We love you both and will miss him greatly. Don & Sandi Mulder

I'm so sorry I missed the funeral. I just found out today about his passing. He truly loved life. He was a great man and I treasure his friendship. He will be missed.

Mr. Ryder was instrumental in teaching so many of us skills that we still use today. I am so grateful for his role in my life. Memories of him and going to his class in 7th grade at Fannin Jr. High are among the best of my school years. I still have the items I made in his metals class and cherrish them dearly. My sincerest condolences to his family. He was awesome to us and thank you for sharing him with us at FJH, 1978. John J.D. Butler
