    I am grieved over missing my dear friend’s funeral. I just now found this online and take full blame for not searching for this sooner. I hope to apologize to Tom when Christ comes and we meet in heaven. He was a true and sincere friend. Thank you Cheryl for your faithfulness, love, and care for Tom.
