Tom was an awesome friend and school mate. Sorry we lost contact after 1993. We had many adventures especially just before we both entered the military in '66. Tom was one of the nicest guys and a lot of fun to be with. He will be missed and my best to Bobbi, his wife.

So sorry to of Tom's passing. There were so many memories of Tom in High School. As we all get older and we reflect back time seems so short. Some day we will all once again meet and I can only imagine seeing and hearing Tom's laughs once again, he had such a neat sense of humor. My prayers go to the family and loved ones who are feeling the emptiness he has left in his departure.

I am so sorry to hear about Peggy's passing. She was such a special person not only in High School but as a good friend in these passing years.  It was so good to connect back up with her after our 50th class reunion. I send my sympathies to Bill and the rest of her family. I know she will be missed by all of us.

We are sorry to hear of Mike's passing. I remember Mike from High School as always the genuine, kind and smart one of our class. I was glad to again meet up with Mike at our 50th class reunion. Our heart filled prayers go out to his wife and family.
