|Donna & Holly, It is with very sad hearts we heard of the passing of Tom. We were keeping up with his progress through Dan & Pam. We reflect back on the great times we had running the angus show circuit. We are very sorry we won't be able to make the viewing or funeral because we are in preparation for the upcoming Natl. Angus Conv. in Columbus starting Thursday. With heavy hearts we are keeping you both in our thoughts and prayers.|

|Donna and Holly, Tom brought a lot of smiles to not only myself but especially mom. I know she will miss his calls. Stephen enjoyed the opportunity to get to know both of you during the last few weeks. Prayers and Love, Kay|

|To the Irvin Family, Had the very distinctive privilege to meet Tom in his patrol sergeant position while at the Sheriff's Office. Tom gave me my first chance to work a patrol shift while I was a "special deputy" igniting my career. Such a great friend and Brother and will be sorely missed by all. Prayers to the Family and may Tom Rest in Everlasting Peace.|
