    Deepest sympathy to the Tomas family. I worked with Bob in Public Coin. He was liked by everyone & always had a smile on his face.

    So sorry for the loss of you dad. I will always remember him especially the time at the lake when your dad hid in the water with seaweed all over him and jumped up and scared us acting as Jason from Friday the 13th…as we all came back from the Pontoon boat ride. He and your mom were good people. Hugs Xxxx

    I was thinking of the reminders left behind by you in my Moms house. Old phone lines and electrical outlets in the gameroom and laundry room, even lights you installed 40+yrs ago! They’re still used every day. You’ll always be in our thoughts and hearts. Especially when I hear oldies played. Luv ya!
