"I'm sorry to hear of the loss of your loved one. Jehovah God promises that very soon death and all sorrow will be a thing of the past.

Revelation 21:3,4. "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. "

Also, he promises that there will be a resurrection. This real hope of seeing our dead loved ones live again is found at Acts 24:15.

I hope the promises of the Bible can bring you and your family comfort during this difficult time."

"Mr. Tommy helped shape my career in Education at Murdoch. I worked along side him as an Educational Developmental Assistant for 7 years. I am also thankful for the privilege to be able to drive the tractor on "Farm Day" which I inherited from Mr. Tommy in 2000. He displayed pride in chauffeuring the individuals who lived at Murdoch and people in the community. I take honor in attempting to do the same. We will always remember a man who was there to help people lives matter."

"Jean & family, I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with Tommy at Murdoch Center for many years and I have many memories of him regarding his work with those less fortunate and how much he cared for those he served.  I especially remember how much he loved Dempsey, who was not so easy to love.  Tommy was certainly God's gift to him.  I also remember the hard times and how much he loved you and his children.  You have been his rock for all these years.  Praise God he is out of pain and the world can cast no more sickness upon him.  He is in God's care and there is no better place to be."
