"It's been one year....one filled with tears, laughter, fun times and memories. I still can't believe you're not here with us and I miss you every day. While I miss you, I still have the memories of our family and many good times we have shared. I love you."
"Dan. So sorry to hear about Tommy's passing. I remember growing up how you and my brother Bob and Tommy were always into some form of trouble. Bob loved you two like brothers and was always telling stories and laughing about your "adventures" growing up in Battle Creek. Again, so sorry for your loss. Love to you and Kate."
"Roll on, buddy - old friend, best man - the twinkle in your eye and the chuckle under your breath will always be with me..."
"Erica, I am so sorry for your loss. I truly enjoyed working with Tom on the Willard Library Bookmobile. We worked, we laughed, we lunched at Emilio's, and Tom scared me by driving the Bookmobile through a tunnel near Wattles Park Elementary School. He was a fine man.
