Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this most difficult time. We pray for peace, strength and God's comfort as you continue to grieve for your treasured husband and father. He will be greatly missed by all.

Lori and Kylee Gallero
May God bless you as you recall all of the many wonderful attributes of Tom's life, and beautiful memories your family and friends share in these next weeks and months. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Family is family. No matter how close or how far. Being part of a family is being a part of something so much bigger than ourselves. It is about bringing love and happiness into the lives of those close to our hearts. Thomas Edinger was my grandfather whom I didn't get to know as well as I had hoped, but he was still always there for me, encouraging me and wanting to make memories with me. He brought so much love and happiness into my life while I knew him. My heart and condolences go out to Jan and the rest of the family. I know that he would want us to be living in happiness and celebrating the lives we were given. He will be with us always; family is family, no matter how far away.
