Dear Linda,
We regret our not being able to be with you and your family at this time. We were shocked and saddened to learn of Tom's passing. While we mourn the loss of Tom's presence in our earthly life, he is without doubt experiencing God's heavenly kingdom of which we can only imagine. May the gentle grace and blessings of God be with you and your family through these difficult days, as well as the days ahead.
Love, Jean & Gene
