Nancy and Family,

We are so sorry for your loss! We loved Tom and will miss seeing him at family events! I know My brother Pete will miss hunting with Tom! We once made a trip to Fletchers Pond with Nancy and Tom and Pete and Sandy and their kids! Good times and wonderful memories! For years before Tom and Nancy moved from Lansing to Fenwick I remember seeing them every Sunday at Wayside Chappel church in the exact same seat! We love you all and are praying for God to comfort you during your time of loss!

My grandpa shines through in every lesson that my dad taught my sisters and I. My grandpa taught my dad strong work ethics, as it said perfectly in the obituary. He taught my dad what it means to EARN something and working hard to get it and taking good care of it once you have it, whatever it may be. And that is a life lesson that was passed down to me as I will teach my kids. A lesson I am so grateful for. There are plenty more of those “your grandpa taught me” lessons that we grew up hearing. I believe our country was built on strong hard workers like our Grandpa Tom. The world would be a better place with a few more good honest men like him in it.

You will be missed. Please watch over our family and maybe send a big buck our way this fall.
