I was saddened to hear of Tom's passing. I went to grade school and high school w/ him and have many fond memories of him. I was glad to see him at several of the Chatard HS class reunions. He was a great person to have known. Tom and his family will be in my prayers.

Tom was my boss for 10 years at Linder & Hollowell. I worked for him throughout my 20s and basically "grew up" there. I went through a lot in those ten years with deaths in my family and he was so supportive and understanding. He might not have known it..but he taught me so much, not just about work but about my self and the kind of person I wanted to be. He was one of the most selfless people i've ever met. He will always hold a special place in my heart as will all of the Linder and Hollowell family. To his family, I'm so very sorry for your loss, heaven truly gained an angel that day that Tom went home :(

My deepest sympathy to Lindsay, Ryan and the rest of the Cross family. Tom was a dear friend of mine for over 30 years. His quick wit and thoughtfulness were unmatched, and will never be forgotten. I can't begin to say how very much I'll miss him.
Hope he's having a happy reunion with Jim, Lisa, Bill and Maxine.

My deepest sympathy to all of Tom's family and friends. I am also a Charter member of the Indiana Paralegal Association and worked with Tom at the time IPA was formed. Tom served as our first President of IPA, I believe, and was highly respected within the paralegal community. I am very sorry for your loss...and ours.
