So sorry to hear of your brother’s passing. He’s in the arms of the angels now.
Sincerest sympathies to you Marilyn and your entire family. You all hold a special place in my heart. You are such an important part of our family. We love you all and thank God for his life.
Love, Jan and Ron
My husband, Dave, was a scout leader with Tom and thought highly of him and enjoyed his leadership role in the scout troop. He was a good man who devoted a lot of time to the scout troop. I am sure he will be missed by his family and my condolences to them. May he rest in peace and be with his son. So sorry for your loss.
Tom, it has been 30 years since I last talked to you. May God keep you in his presence. You passed away very young, but at least you went quickly and peacefully.
Worked with Tom many years at First Energy, good person. May he rest in peace.
