    we remember Tom during his Windsor years as a humble and skilled worker – he chose the wallpaper for each room of the old house we had received after a time overseas -Tom matched the paper carefully – in the kitchen it reflected the flooring – over the fire-place the big brass tray – he even made valences over the curtains – may God comfort you as you thank Him for this faithful servant till we meet again at the feet of Jesus – Maurice & Maisey Muller, Ancaster, ON
