Tom was my friend. He said it like it was. He was a great outdoorsman and shared many stories with me from his years in Oregon to Indiana..As his barber for near 50 yrs believe me he told a few. Tom and I were friends before ever being his Barber I'll miss you Tom but will always remember you and the friendship we had.

Prayers to all of my Indiana family. So many memories on summers spent there. Tom has went onto a better place and his hurting earthly body has been replaced with a new one that is dancing on streets of gold! God Bless you all and I am thinking of you. (((Hugs)))

Tom was so helpful when I had computer problems both when he was with Klings and even after he left there. I know he was the love of Susan's life and will be sorely missed. He was called home too soon for his wife and family but, God must have needed a computer fixed. Rest in peace Tom.
