I was so saddened to hear the news of Tom’s passing. He was a great guy to work with and also liked to have fun. I remember when Marley purchased Wylain, I was hired to move Wylain’s accounting records to Marley. I was in Dallas and locked the keys in my rental car. No one was still in the office but Tom. I was a new, nervous employee, but Tom helped me out and I am forever grateful for that. He was the model of “Work hard,play hard.” My thoughts, prayers and condolences are with his family. May you be strengthened with the many wonderful memories that you all share of Tom. Sandy (Flink) Gottlob

We were so sorry to hear about Tom's passing. He fought a long and hard battle but the Good Lord apparently saw that he was getting tired of the fight and called him home. He is in a better place now with no more pain .He was a trooper and we were fortunate to have known him. The family will all stay in our prayers. Ginger please keep in touch and know that if you need anything we are there for you and the kids. Blessings to you all. Your friends, Ernie and Suzanne

Shocked and surprised to learn of Tom's passing. He looked so good on Easter Morning and we talked about playing golf this summer. I take comfort in knowing that his faith in our Savior, Jesus Christ was the bedrock of his life and his family. My prayer is that our Lord will comfort and carry all of us who loved Tom through this time of loss with the certain hope that we will see Tom again in the resurrection won for us on Easter.

Chuck & I were so very sorry to hear of Tom's passing. We met standing in line at check-in on the Princess Cruise and then ended up being stateroom neighbors - we were obviously destined to meet and become friends. We will always cherish our memories of that wonderful week. Ginger, you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers on losing your wonderful Tom. He will be greatly missed.
