Always counted on seeing Tom by your side Phyllis, and he was always smiling. He was a true gentleman, and so keenly insightful about politics. Always learned something from his conversations. Deeply saddened about his passing. Respectfully,

Phyllis, Judy and I will miss that wonderful big smile and hug that Tom shared with his many friends. I will miss the friendship of a fellow Army officer, Rotarian, and church member at Bethel through our 19 years together in Lewes. We are sorry to miss his service at Bethel this week because we will be in California with children and grandchildren. Our love to you and your family. Jack and Judy Dawson

Dear Phylly: what a treasure Tom was! Not only to you, whom he loved so deeply, but to all of his friends, of which there were many! I can honestly say I never knew Tom to be anything but kind, courteous, thoughtful, generous, helpful and a good friend. His smile could light up a room so quickly. We'll miss him greatly. I'm sorry we can not be with you, but we will see you as soon as we can.
