  1. So sorry for the loss of Thomas. I really enjoyed the times that I got to talk to him and Norita at family gatherings.I also liked when we would hang out at the farm and talk about old cars and coon hunting with Carrie. I guess you would call it back in the day. Good memories that make me smile until we see him again someday.

  2. We appreciated Tom so much during the many ISO audits he conducted at our facility in Westlake, La. He was always very professional, pleasant to be around, and full of entertaining stories from his many years of working the job and working his land. We will miss him, and all of us at the Lonza Lake Charles Plant want to send our sincere sympathies and blessings to his family.

He was so very special to all that loved him dearly & will be greatly missed. Our thoughts & prayers are with all in this very difficult time. God Bless All & take care of each other. I know that Thomas & Norita always did their best. Always enjoyed seeing all at “the farm” when we had the chance.
