Our condolences to the McCloy clan. I taught with Tom many years ago and have seen him intermittently since then. Tom was always interested in the other person. He enthusiastically shared his activities and endeavors.. The world lost a “good guy” when he passed. Charlotte and Barry Eidsness

Thank you for a beautiful service honouring all that Tommy was for everyone whose lives he touched. Blessings of peace be with you all as we walk the days and weeks of remembrance ahead. Tommy and Dorothy were heroes to me as I was growing up. They were always the first to arrive when our needed them. They created excitement with all of their new adventures. I will always hold close Tommy's words at the service of blessing he asked me to take part in at the Meskanaw cemetery, "We worked together all our lives and we will rest together again here."  Blessed be.  

Love Bernie and Garnet.
