  1. To Tom’s Family,

    Tom and I were “Brothers in Conservation.” I worked for the Kansas Forest Service and Tom and I spoke about trees and their place in wildlife conservation over the phone several times during his tenure with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. He, and his great sense of humor will be missed by all who knew him.

    You are in my thoughts,
    Jack

  2. To Tommy’s family,
    So sorry for your loss. We knew Esther very well, as she was a member of Rossville United Methodist Church. She was a Wonderful lady and loved her son very much.
    God Bless you

  3. To Tommy’s Family,
    So sorry for your loss. I went to school with Tommy. May he rest in peace and your memories help to ease the pain of your loss.
