Wanted to say how very sorry I am for your loss.
I was so shocked and after the surprise wore off I felt so sad. It&s so hard to believe.
Tom was a very good person and will be missed by many. I am however, glad that he made our class reunion several years back and everyone there got to say hello and see him after so many years. I was especially glad to see him.
Our prayers will always be with you and all the family.

With Greatest Sympathy,

From Helen Nickles Boley
Classmate of 1965

""The people who influence us the most are not those who detain us with their continual talk, but those who live their lives like the stars in the sky and the lilies of the field? simply and unaffectedly"" (Oswald Chambers). Thom lived his life in service of faith, family and friends. It was my great honor to work with Thom. He was the voice of MED and will be greatly missed by his co-workers. We will always treasure the time he was with us and his quiet yet profound example of a life well lived. My sympathy and prayers are with the family.

I would like to share my deepest condolences and sympathy to you all during this time of great loss. It was one of the great blessings in my life to have known Thom for the last 16 years. He was an inspiration and a role model for me in his gentle demeanor, steadfast work ethic, dry sense of humor and passion for service in Christ. He will be greatly missed.

I was so sorry to hear about the passing of Tom. You both were such special people and I loved being a part of the Search Team with you at St. Joe in Ironton. I remember coming to your house in Ceredo and having such a great time together. In reading his obituary, it looked like he was still involved in many activities in the church and with the Search program. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Love Amy

To the entire Reed family:
we know that during this time of sorrow and grief, that you will be comforted in knowing that spiritually, all is well with your loved one. He was a wonderful example to the family, of what a evoted father and husband should be. I remember seeing him two weeks ago in church, with his arm around his wife. What a wonderful testimony of the joy of Holy matrimony, and a beautiful gift to your family. May you will always keep those types of memories in your hearts.
Allow the community to surround and support you in these days of grief. You are loved by many.
God Bless you always

To Tom Family,

Tom and I were good buddys at St Joe. We would argue about Desoto&s and Pontiacs.
I enjoyed his E-mails the past few years. He will be in My prayers. He left us to soon. I will miss him.
