Doreen, Ivan, Heather, Mienna, Kaela, Richard, Iris and your families. Thinking of you all during this sad time. Tom was one of the best students I had the pleasure to teach. He was a pleasant, polite, hard working honor student. He knew how to balance school, sports, and farming even at a young age. May the warm memories of all that he has accomplished, and all the great times you had with him put a smile on your face every day, as you carry on without him. My prayers are with you all.
