I am so sorry to hear of Tom's passing. I delivered Meals to him for many years, and always had so many great greetings from him and his mother. I will miss seeing him. Know that my thoughts and prayers are with the family. Steve and Marie Marro


Our condolences to the McCullough family. Always enjoyed a chat with Tom and his mom whether running into them at a local dinner or the store for his scratch off tickets.

I'm very sorry to hear of Tom's passing. Our thoughts are with the McCullough family.


Hi Shirley, I remember you from Zayres many years ago when you worked in the greeting card section of the store. I lived a short time and rented a room in the house next to your farm and was there with my baby. In 1988 it was mother’s day and Tom brought a jar filled with flowers and that was very nice and thoughtful. I remember with shock seeing cows so close to the windows-what a nice place you had there, your husband Burt. I hope you find comfort with your family in the coming days. Teresa Rohlin
