This condition was…

I didn't know Tom personally, but felt like I was listening to an old friend every time I read his column...& read it, I did...faithfully. A true word master, gifted comic. God Speed, Mr. Richards, & thank you.

You don't know me and I really did not know Tom. My brother, Bob, worked at the P.C. in the plant. When my brother passed, I was surprised to see Tom at the church during visitation. I was very impressed and pleased that Tom took the time to attend the visitation. I'm sure that was just an indication of the person Tom was/is. By the way, I always enjoyed his columns very much. You should be very proud of Tom and his work/life!!

We remember Tom as a very caring individual with a great sense of humor. It was always interesting when we got together on family occasions for holidays with Tom at the table. His humor and perspective on life made for good conversation. Our sympathies to Tom and Anna and their families on the loss of their father.

Tommy & Anna, My heart is also broken by this news. I have nothing but fun memories of the many nights spent in your kitchen. Playing games, eating wonderful sweet treats your mom would make, going down to the corner store and buying "weird beer", laughing until the wee hours. Watching the two of you grow up was a joy for me (hard to believe hey?). I will always have a spot in my heart for both your mom and dad. He truly was one of the cleverest minds I have ever encountered. My prayers are with you both. Dennis Wilddg

I'll never forget telling Tom what a great community service he performed when he wrote an article about sweat pants. After reading it, I never wore sweats in public again!! He really enjoyed that.....it left him laughing...... RIP Tom.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

The bond we shared for nearly a half-century cannot be expressed in a mere page of words. Countless times something happened that triggered the "Oh, I gotta call Tom" response. No matter how off the wall, we always "got each other." Not everyone did, but your gentle nature guaranteed a compassionate reaction. You were always there for me, no matter how weird my actions were. I hope I reciprocated. Our contact may be over here, but the friendship doesn't end. Nor, of course, do the memories. Rest in Peace, my Brother.
