To my dear Young family: This is a very sad time for all of us....we especially feel the sadness being so far away...we will always be there in spirit, when we can’t physically. Tom and Barb were an inspirational couple ... faith filled people who were always there to lend a helping hand, offer advice, or just listen. This dynamic duo are now one; but God has His plan for each. Thank you for all you have been in our lives and our family, not to mention your surrounding community and beyond. This is a great loss to not only the family, but the community. Feel the love that is intertwined in each word and each line. We continue to hold you all in thought and prayer. Rest In Peace good and faithful servant.

I am so sorry to hear of Tom's passing and I wish I could be there. What a truly wonderful man. I remember all of our talks about airplanes over the years and working with him on the rentals. I was always in awe of his spryness. He made me laugh and was always so good to me! Barb, I love you my Nother Mother and I wish I was there to give you the biggest hug! I hope you all know how much your kindness has meant to me over the years and I am truly grateful to have gotten to spend the with Tom. He will be missed so very much!
