Oh, Mrs. Johns I am SO sorry for your loss! I miss seeing you (since the restaurant across the way closed) and was heartbroken to hear this news so late. You are in my thoughts!
I remember when I used to help "pattern" Tommy when I was just a teenager. I will never forget him and he looks the same to me .
Being in Chicago now, my Dad let me know of the news. Just wanted to let you know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.

My dear Jean, Please accept my condolences in the loss of your son Thomas. Although I did not know him, I did know you and what a devoted advocate you were for him and for Portage County DD program. May you find comfort in your church and with Father MAdden, and our dear Lord above.
I will not be able to attend as I am having surgery really early Thursday am., but my thought and prayers go with you. Connie Kelley, former Happy Day School Secretary/Receptionist.
