    We can’t express how much Tom meant to us over the years. He always brought light into our lives when we were around him.

    Tom was a good friend for the 40 years we knew him in Kokomo and after we moved to Florida when he was down for the winter. We had talked about his winter plans before he went into North Woods.

    Our condolences to you and your wonderful family. Donnie & Annie Puett
