  3. Our love and sympathies to all of the Family. Tom and Phyllis ministered in so many ways to so many people. Tom’s leadership and pastor-skills made any project smoother and more complete. Only fond memories of our time together at CHUM. Steve & Linda Hiebert

  4. My love and sympathy to Phyllis and family from Goodland, Ks. So many good memories from the time you all spent with Ken and I when Tom served our church. Now Tom can visit with Ken, the custodian, in Heaven.
