Tom and I became friends in the 1950s when we were both involved in the Michigan Association of Certified Public Accountants. It was always a joy to see him at meetings; he was a valued colleague and advisor to other CPs, and he always had a smile and asked about my life, both professional and persona.

Dear family. I am so sorry for the loss of your dear loved one. What brings me comfort in times like these is the scripture found at Revelation 21: 3, 4 where God promises to do away with all sickness and death forever. Please accept my heartfelt condolences and may Jehovah, the God of all comfort, be with your family during this most difficult time in your lives.
