"My father in law was one my closest friends. We could easily talk about anything! I put this man on a huge pedestal. He laughed at the silliest things. What a huge heart he had. The stories he told about his life were endless. Asking him to tell about his life would bring honest pleasure, as he would talk, I listened to him every time, and never a duplicate story was told. I miss him."
"Happy Birthday Grandpa♡"
"Grandma was more like a mother to me, she was there everyday after school to praise and feed me. She worked hard and taught me to do the same, "If you want the job done right, you have to do it yourself" she would say. Grandpa was the most gentle loving person I ever knew. He was not quick to anger and always had a beautiful way of teaching us good morals and lessons. He taught me to love all people as a brother or sister does. The two most inspirational people, had the most significant role in my upbringing! Forever thankful grandpa and grandma, for all your love and dedication. The world will never be the same. I would not be me if it were not for you two! Respect, honesty, integrity, dependability, they had it all. I hope I can be just like them one day."
"Tom was a truly amazing person and I will always feel very fortunate to have known him for almost 20 years. Tom was a gentle giant and a true gentleman. He and I played golf on many occasions and had many conversations over the years...I feel grateful and honored to have known he and Rudine. RIP, Tom...you are already missed."
"We knew Tom and Rudine about 40 years. Although we didn't see them often, we still knew them as true, down to earth, caring people. We are grateful to them both for having raised the perfect husband.for our daughter.
I will remember Rudine for her warm, hospitable ways who always wanted to feed everyone who came to their house. She had a great sense of humor and could come up with the darndest sayings I ever heard. I admired her for the feisty ways she had when she knew she was right.
Tom had a heart as big as the world. He was hard-working, strong, yet the softest, most gentle man you could ever meet. I will remember him for his kindness and tolerant loving ways, his ready smile, and especially for the way his eyes crinkled and sparkled when he laughed. He and Rudine will both be missed."
"These two wonderful people will be dearly missed."
