Rest in peace, Tommy. You will be missed very much!!!
Kelly and family. I'm so very sorry to hear of Tom's passing. I always looked forward to visiting Tom at job sites and employee events for Schumacher Elevator. His raspberry jam was the best. He will forever live in your hearts. With Sympathy, Melanie Schmitt
Kelly, We are thinking of you at this sad time....With Love, Bobbi, Heather and Shelby
Dad you left us too soon we will never forget the memories we had I will remember the good times more than anything like the time we drove 80 miles to go hunting and the snow was to my waist and I couldn't walk thru the snow so we drove 80 miles for pancakes at a diner. L❤VE YOU ALWAYS YOUR OLDEST DAUGHTER Nichole Anne Marie Gehring
