My thoughts and prayers are with you all! I can just see Tom sitting beside Jesus and telling him about his wonderful family! And Jesus is patting him on the back, saying "Your job was well done. Welcome to love, peace and enjoy your new body!" With love and heart-felt thanks I give to my Father, his Son, and the Holy Spirit that i had the destinct blessing to have known Tom. I will miss him, but will also smile each time i think of him spreading his joy in heaven! God bless you, Ewald family!
