    “My Sweet Uncle”
    God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be. So, He put his arms around you Uncle Thomas (Carl) and whispered, “Come to me”.
    A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest.
    God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.
    Uncle, you fought the good fight and finished the race and kept your faith along the way.
    I’m gonna miss your phone calls and our scratch-off ticket moments, but I will see you again in heaven and I will always check up on Aunt Elo from time to time. Rest in Heaven now with Our Lord Jesus Christ. I will always have you in my heart.
    Love your neice,
    Ann Sidener

    Even though my time with Thomas was brief, I feel so fortunate to have had my time with him. He always made me feel like part of the family and that was very special. His sense of humor, his infectious laugh and his zeal for life could disarm even strangers instantly. His loving devotion to his wife Elo though was really something special. He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, uncle, father in law, brother, and friend. He was empowered by curiosity, joy, and gratitude. He will be missed but for all of us whose lives he touched, he is now part of us and always present.

  7. Jamie Willis says:

    When I look back on the 20 years of my life in which you were a part of it, I’m reminded of all the laughter and joy you brought. You had an ability like no other person I’ve met to make others, even strangers, laugh and smile. I will always do my best to carry on that trait as a reminder of you daily. The thought of not seeing you and hearing your laugh again tears at my heart, but your legacy and impact on all of us has no end.

  8. Kathy and John Williams says:

    I will always remember how Thomas’ face lit up whenever he talked about how he got saved. He loved the Lord! We will miss him but know he is rejoicing at the feet of His Savior!

  9. Mark and Stefanie Price says:

    Precious are the memories of my friend, and Brother in the Lord, Thomas. If it is possible to know anyone in heaven, it will be Thomas. The Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ changed this man into a new Creation. I will miss him, and cherish the memories of my good friend.
