    My Love,
    Today is 11 years of our great decision of Join our lives! I feel blessed with all the good and bad, the ups and downs, the experiences and learnings we did together, and one of the most important things was: to put God as the captain in our ship! So proud of our family and our girls! God be with you!!!

    Love You Buddy!

    It has been an honor to call Tom my friend these last 8 months. We met when he hired me to paint his boat, and we quickly became friends. I had the honor to ride with him back home after we finished the boat, and to share a few meals with his wonderful family. Tom loved his wife and girls as much as any man could.
    I have lost a dear friend. I miss you brother. Some people touch us right away, and forever. You have left us with great memories, and a standard to live up to that will cause me to reach for my best as a man, and dad and maybe one day again as a husband.

    Dear Jess and Family,

    I'm so very sorry for your loss. You know he fought hard to stay and be with you. But that was not part of God's Perfect Plan. He was a loving husband and father, so proud of you and his children.

    I'm certain he's on a heavenly cruise, steaming along a beautiful waterway, enjoying a good read at night, and wishing you all were with him.

    Love,

    Marie, Ted, Lisa and Laura
