Love, condolences, and prayers to Anne, Loren & Mike and family, and Edward and family. I have so many loving memories of Tommy – he (and all of you) treated me as one of your own while growing up with Loren and spending lots of time at your home, and every time I visited after moving to Iowa. I cherish all these wonderful memories and pray that he is now at peace. Love to you all – Dawn (Lane) Martin and family
