  1. Cookie and Family, my sincerest sympathy at the passing of husband and father, Tom! I knew him as a quiet gentleman. I will always remember the note he sent with tax payments, “please send a receipt” even though he had already included a self-addressed stamped envelope.

  2. Cookie and family,
    I am so saddened to hear of Tom’s passing. My sympathies to you all.
    He was a great guy and a wonderful friend to my Dad, Larry Flick. I know my dad cherishes the memories of their fishing trips and time together. I really appreciate him also visiting my Dad in the nursing home, it meant so much. Wishing you peace.

  3. Cookie and family. I know this past year has been a rough one. Tom truly loved his family. He will be missed. Cookie stay strong and know that Tom is watching over you. God bless you and your family. Tom is at peace now. Luv ya.
