  1. Tom, my friend. Cadet Class #43 was a long time ago, wasn’t it? I do have an idea of what the road you’re travelling down now looks like. I lost my Anita this past January. I sincerely hope that you and your family are able to find some peace in the days and months ahead.


  2. Tom, Suzanne and Michael

    So sorry to hear about your mom. I know how difficult it is to lose a parent so my thoughts and prayers are with you and your families.

  3. Dear Tom and family,
    Our prayers and thoughts are with you all during this time of loss. Prayers for comfort and peace!
    Love, The Beals family

  5. We are so priveleged to have known Linda. She was a very special person, a very important part of a great family. We will always miss her, but we will always be comforted in knowing that she is with God and someday we will all be together again. In the meantime, we will pray for comfort and peace for the members of her family who meant so much to her.

  6.  Of all the qualities that God possesses, love is the most dominant one. He loved us so much that he gave his only begotten Son so that we may live. Life is what he purposed, not death. Soon he will swallow up death forever and remove all the things that cause pain and suffering. Until that time may each of you take comfort in him and in each other.

    Revelation 21:3-5
    Psalms 37:29
