    Tom always had a smile on his face and something nice to say – a real example to us all. But not to worry – Jehovah has a day already scheduled to bring him and many others back to us. Until then, we will keep Tom in our memories along with all faithful ones who put faith in the ‘real life’.

    Doug and I were very sad to hear of Tom’s passing. What a very kind and gentle man. We will especially miss his smile. You’re in our prayers. Jehovah remembers all the good done in his name. Isaiah 57;15. He resides with those crushed in spirit and revives those feeling lowly and having a crushed heart. Our love and condolences to Carol and his children.

  7. Carla White says:

    Carole and Sara, I love you so much. Tom touched so many people, including myself. What a wonderful, courageous, sweet soul he was.

  8. Suzanne Silvas Apodaca says:

    Tom and Carole were very generous with me and my family when I moved to Tennessee 26 years ago. We were starting over and had just about nothing. They lovingly loaned many things to us, including furniture and a vacuum cleaner. They were so warm and kind to me; something I will never forget.

    I also admired Tom so much because, at that time, he worked from home but got dressed in business clothes each day. He said it put him in the frame of mind to be industrious at his job. He set a good example as a person who took care of his family, and was always kind to others.

    I enjoy these memories of Tom but I will miss seeing his friendly face at the conventions.

    Much love to you, Carole,

    Suzanne 🙂

    My brother will be so missed, he was so kind and compassionate to all.
