  1. To the Family. SO sorry for your loss. Hope you will be comforted in knowing that Thomas has the prospect of being resurrected (in the flesh) to Paradise Earth as God has promised. The vast majority will have everlasting life here on earth. God’s Kingdom will do this under the Rulership of Jesus Christ. READ John 5:28, 29, Job 14:14, 15 and Revelation 21:2-4

  4. Tom was the real deal, what you saw is what you got, not one pretentious bone in his body. He had a big & kind heart. You fought a good fight Tom. Our thoughts are with his family whose hearts are broken. We hope your many happy memories will help you all through this tough time and bring you even closer together.

  6. Tom was a great friend. In my travels with him to Scotland, Germany, and France, he not only contributed his knowledge, but also his humor and wit. He made us forget we were far from home. He always made others feel welcome, with true sincerity. He was a great host at the gatherings at his home. I will always hold him in my memories of the good old days of the Olefins business. I hope that in these sad days, the family is consoled by the thought that Tom touched so many lives, that many others loved him and will remember him, and will think of the loss to his family. My heartfelt condolences.

  7. Tom was a unique soul – he affected so many of my fellow Amoco engineers’ early careers …to the positive. His quick, sharp, sometimes biting whit was paired with his practical, no-nonsense, intelligent, knowledge- and experience-based approach to life. I personally benefitted from his ability to make you feel you were part of a bigger plan. As I begin to look back on my career (now that I’m of THAT age), I consider myself fortunate to have known Tom. My condolences and I wish you peace during this difficult time.

  9. Bennett, Kimberlie and family,
    Ray and I are so sad to hear of Tom’s passing. He was a very nice man and you two had such love for one another; just seeing you together said it all.

  10. We got to know “Texas” during our winter stays in Vero Beach. What a happy man with a great sense of humour. He and Nancy hosted some of our get togethers and we always felt welcomed heartily. He would tease me because we were from Canada and he always made me laugh. Nancy is a generous friend and we feel very saddened by her loss. Memories will hopefully be soothing at this most difficult time. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and the family, Nancy.

    With Love, Donna and Dave
