Tom and Pat were so wonderful when Randy died.  They helped me out so many times and were always there for me.

It was so unexepcted when Tom passed away - I hated to see Pat go through what I had already been through.  I miss Tom; he has such a wonderful family and a sweet, beautiful wife.  I am so glad that Pat and I are friends.

It's hard to express how sad the day was when I learned of Tom's passing.  Pat and I had such fun in our neighborhood and it was a happy day when she married Tom, the love of her life.

Time may pass us by but it's the friends that will sustain us.  Pat - you are in my thoughts.

Tom Cracroft... friend from Kindergarten through High School. The South High flashbacks that come when I see each alum name is touching. The saddest part are that so many have already left us. Tom, we'll always remember and love you my friend. ~Dave

I was truly saddened when I heard of Tom's passing.  He was one of the kindest and most genuine people that I have ever known.  I am very grateful to have known him and also very humbled by the example that he set for rest of us, on how to live life with enthusiasm and with grace.
