Thinking of you Norine, Linda and Mike at this time during the loss of Tom. Our families spent countless hours at Cedar Point just about every summer growing up. We all certainly have wonderful memories. I hope Rosemarie and Tom are sharing memories too.
Sending prayers of healing to your family as we celebrate Tom.

Sorry for your loss, Tom will be missed. Tom was such a giving man, we used to talk about our gardens and he brought me some of the most wonderful tomato seeds and they were awesome. Many prayers heading your way.
