Dear Cindy and Family, It was a short friendship for us and Tom. I can't say how much I appreciated what he did for Jim in making the little golf green and in getting the Golf Outing Memorial started for him. It was so bittersweet. Thank you for sharing with us and being a friend. Remember the night we sat at the "Well" and talked about your Mom? When you wonder "Why", I find you may never find out but someone said, "Jim went away to prepare the room" Maybe it was for Tom. Mary & Ron Weiss

Whenever we were at family functions it always was a pleasure to talk to you. Both of you had a great relationship, and you will be missed a great deal down here. I know you will watch over Cindy and comfort her in her time of need. Heaven has just gained another wonderful sole and earth will be a lesser place without you. You are at peace and someday we can caught up on old times again.

Tom always greeted me with a big smile. And always inquired about how I was doing. I could always count on Tom for a laugh or two when we would see each other. A true family man and great person. Through out my childhood and today, I always admired the relationship that Tom and Cindy shared. He loved his family, friends and pets very much. We can all learn from Tom's genuine love of life and family. Miss you Buddy.

Snake's smile and chuckle brought joy to everyone around him. Whenever I think of him I picture his grin. Then I grin. His friendship made me a happier man.

Cindy, I remember singing at your wedding. I remember the song was about parents watching their "young girl" growing up to be a woman. The phrase "turn around" was in the song alot. May God hold you and bless you as you go through this time of loss. Sincerely, Ann Duchac
