    Sorry to hear about Tom. I am surely going to miss drinking Marianne’s coffee and chatting with Tom in their kitchen.

    I was so sorry to hear of your loss. I am currently living in Detroit and was unable to attend the service. My heart goes out to your family and the hurt you are experiencing. The pain never goes away, you just learn to adjust with time. I’m praying that God will help you through these very difficult times and I still think of your loving family often.
