My Uncle Tom was a one of a kind Uncle! I will never forget the many wonderful times and the love and laughter we all shared as a family. The many trips to Barberton for chicken, or just getting together, and the stories shared! God really blessed us all. You will be greatly missed.

You will be in our thoughts and prayers this day. May our Father in heaven watch over you and comfort you this day.
We hope the following verse reminds you of the love that Christ has for us and the reassurance of our salvation for those who give their hearts and lives in the service of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ- God's Son.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son (Jesus Christ), that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
