    Dear Sue, and family,
    It saddened me to learn of Tom’s passing. However, I am happy that I had the chance to see and talk to him and you recently at the Bellevue Knights’ of Columbus Fish Fry. And I will always treasure my memories of the times we Herek’Cousins got together in the past.

    My sincerest condolences to you and your family Sue. I am so honored to have had Tom and you in my life during the Kroc Center years we shared. I have enjoyed his quiet sense of humor and hugs. Sue I wish I could see you in person today for Tom’s home going, but I’m sending love and hugs instead. I wish you and the family peace and love. Rest in Heaven Tom.
