Prayers from our home for the family's comfort and peace. Tom was a wonderful man, cousin, and brother in Christ. We were blessed with him for too short a time in this world but rest in faith that we will have an eternity together!
Dave and I want to say how sorry we are for the loss of your loved one, Tom. Will keep your family in our prayers. God bless all of you, Joan Potter Kramer
I remember hearing about a guy Trina met and it wasn't long after she introduced me. You were easy to talk too and I could already see the connection gaining strength through the two of you. And it made my soul smile to watch the two of you fall in love and start a life together.
Years and years and years later... we all went out to an early dinner and it was wonderful still to see the love between the two of you.
All our love to you, Tia...
