Louise’s favorite note from Thomas she would like to share;
Little do you know what you have done to me all these 52 years!  You taught me to know not only Jehovah, but also, I fully got to know the love of my life, Yes, my dear wife, Louise.
You have been there when I needed you.  You have helped inspire me in many important decisions.  You do well to keep me  on the straight and narrow.  You help me in all my trials and tribulations.  You are a help that no other individual could fulfil.  You show no stress if I should give cause for stress.  You are the joy of my life.    With Jehovah’s help, we will spend eternity together, which pleases me to the fullest of love that there is available.  I will love you forever.  Your Loving husband, Love Tom
