    Dear Thomas, I’m sorry to hear from your premature departure. You have been such a good friend when Mary and I were living in NYC. I know everyone really appreciated your straight forward nature and sincerity. I’m sorry I cannot attend your Seonghwa Ceremony, but we’ll be praying for your peaceful ascension to the Heavenly Realm where the love of God and True Father will welcome and embrace you.

    Hi Tom and Michele,
    We never really thanked you enough for all the love and support you showed our family as we began family life in the New Yorker in 1986 while working on the building restoration.
    May all Heavens blessing and love surround you and your family.
    With love Kit and Maria Ogden.

    Dear Tom and Michelle, I will never forget the time of your matching in late December 1980. You both shared the same birthday and you were matched on your birthday by our beloved True Father. You were the first matching couple of the 842 couples that were matched at that time. Many years later, I was hosted by your family with so much love in your home in Queens. I was moved to see the love between the 2 of you. Surely , you will remain one as our True Parents are one for eternity and you will be a bridge of love between the physical and the spiritual worlds. Bon courage Michelle et grosses bises. Colette

    My heart and love goes out to Tom’s family. I did not get to know Tom, however I know Michele, who is a wonderful sister. My heart goes out to their family, it is always hard to let a loved one go to the eternal world. Is it not always to early. I will keep you in my prayers.

    Tom, as front desk security at the New Yorker, always gave such a warm and friendly welcome home to all of us who lived there. A bright spot in our days. Thank you, Tom!

    Dear Michele,
    I am sending you my heartfelt condolence.I worked with Thomas on the WMC staff from the very first day in May 1976 until shortly after the Blessing in 1982. I remember him as a brother who was always kind, cheerful, and warm.
    With love, Karin.

    Dear Michelle, Gabe, and family,
    Our families have shared this life in many ways since I first met Tom in 1976 when he was driving many of us to Belvedere on Sundays. We understand a bit of the changes that you are facing ahead and our hearts are with you. God speed Thomas!

    I knew of his interest in the classical arts and a few of us did a song together His effervescence was apparent throughout. I don’t remember the song but I remember the joy we experienced. Have a peaceful transition Thomas and keep singing.

    Tom is always willing and forthright in all things, a true example of a “True Man”, I’m sure heaven is brighter with Tom now living in the heavenly kingdom.

    Tom and I worked together for many years at the World Mission Center and he was a good brother and good friend. I was sorry to hear of his passing and was unable to attend his Seong Hwa. I wish him God Speed and will see him in the future! 🙂
