    We knew Thom for nearly 30 years. What a funny, thoughtful man. His outlook on life and jokes were often a highlight when we share a meal at church functions and with other friends. His and June’s 50th anniversary was such a wonderful celebration and a testament to their love for each other. We were lucky to have had him in our lives and hope June and their son Mark can know that Thom won’t be forgotten.
