Please accept our sympathy and prayers on the loss of Tom. He was a big part of our lives in the seventies. We have some fond memories of our bowling team,

softball league, and great barbecue’s at the Bagdon house. We often think of those good time with smiles and laughter. Rest in peace dear friend.
