To the family of Thomas
Thomas and I talked on several occasions about his life and his family. He was a really good man who loved his family and friends. I'm sorry for your loss. I will be keeping all of you in my prayers and asking God for comfort and strength for all of you in the days ahead. I will miss talking to him and seeing his smiling face.
With much love,
Minette Meyer

Caroline and Tim,
We are praying for you during this time of adjustment and transition. It's good to know that Tom is with the Lord. We grieve, but not as those who have no hope.
