    It breaks my heart to know you have to go through the loss of your dad. I am so very sorry.

    I would have never guessed that throughout life we would end up with so much in common. You were my childhood “sister” and your parents were like my own. We shared some amazing times together. You and your parents were a huge part of my life and I will never forget how much you all mean to me.

    Right now I know this is probably the hardest thing you have ever been through, but just think of the good memories and I promise it will help you through this bad one.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. If you ever want to talk or if there is anything else I can do, please don’t hesitate to call.

    All my love…Jessica Peterson

    To Donny and Val, we are so sorry for your loss. Your dad was a wonderful and caring person and I hope he knew how many people truly cared about him! He was a very good commander of Post 301 and will surely be missed. We miss his smile already. God Bless You.

    I’ve known Tom for about 5 years and he has been a big part of my life. We had a very special relationship. He was my confidant, mentor and the best friend a person could have. He gave selflessly with his heart, hands, time and knowledge. I respected him for all he stood for and all he gave to everyone. He could never say no, when someone was in need. I loved Tom for all these reasons and a big part of my heart goes with him. He was a special man indeed.

    Valerie & Don,

    So sorry to hear of your Fathers passing. I had the opportunity to meet your Father while working at the Pantry Truckstop..I sold him many Detroit Free Presses. I always looked forward to his words of wisdom (jokes). He will be deeply missed.

    In Thoughts & Prayers,

    Having gone through school with Tom, I have many fond memories of his antics. He could always make me laugh and even when he harassed me it was done in fun. I am so sorry by his passing and offer my deepest condolances to his family.
