  1. I taught one of Thomas’ sisters many years ago. I am now at a different school, but wanted to tell you that upon learning of your son’s passing, my class and I included him and your family in our prayers before the Blessed Sacrament.

    May Our Lady comfort you in your time of sorrow.

  2. Dear Tom, Colette and Family,
    May our Lord and His blesses Mother shower you with blessings for
    the love and care you gave this son and brother. Only God knows the
    pain in the trials and the tears spent on his care. May your comfort be
    in knowing he fought and good fight and he kept the faith!
    May God bless and Mary love you all!

  3. To Thomas and his family,
    Thomas, have started your ‘eternity’ and can now ‘sing with the angels’. As you know and I think I told your mom, there were over 300 angels there on your journey, as all the Kinder students for 13 years have sent their angels for those who die. This year our prayers in the Kindergarten will be for your family, that God will ease their pain by thinking of all the ‘happy’ moments that they have of you. Remember to pray for us dear Thomas, so we may sing with the angels with you some day.
    With happy memories of your time in Kindergarten and prayers,
    The Shiblers

  5. Dear Tom, Colette, Karla, and family,
