You have gracefully slipped into the other world as softly as you entered ours. The world is not as warm nor as sweet without you with us.

I had the privilege of speaking with Tom Friday evening. We spoke of old times and looked forward to seeing each other on my return visit to Michigan City. He was hoping to arrange a meeting with my classmate, his sister, Cynthia. I will treasure my call. His last words to me "take care of yourself and get home to visit." Love you Tom.Love you too Phyllis. You are now in God's hands.

I remember all the good times we had during high school with our friends at dances, parties and just hanging out. I'll remember Tom as a gentle sole and a good hearted person. My sympathy to his family and the Kalil siblings who were always a pleasure to be around.
