Sending love to Seby, his mommy and sister. You will always miss your daddy. Jesus loves you Seby. He loves your mommy and Brooklyn, too. I pray you feel Jesus arms around you, your Guardian Angel watching over you, and Gods love surrounding you. God bless you abundantly. With a hug, Miss Talbot Do not let your hearts be troubled. Believe in God, believe also in me. In my Fathers house there are many dwelling places. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, so that where I am, there you may be also. Jesus said to him, I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you know me, you will know my Father also. John 14:1-3, 6

We are deeply saddened by this news, to Jessica and the children, you are in our thoughts and prayers. At Elevate I had the pleasure of leading team where Tom worked. His personality could light up any room and we will always remember his kind spirit! Tom was SO proud to be a dad, his children inspired him to be better and he never missed an opportunity to share stories about them. We love you Tom, you inspired me to be a better person, a better parent, a better leader and a better friend! Thank you for sharing your gifts with us.

Tom was a kind-hearted and genuine guy. He was the first organizer to join the outreach team after me at Elevate Energy, so I helped train him and we even did a couple presentations together. I remember he was so excited about the birth of his daughter, and you could tell he was such a loving dad. It honestly makes me so sad to think about a good person going so suddenly and so early in his life, especially knowing how much he meant as a father. I find solace in the thought that many who knew him remember him this way, and I hope to honor his memory by sharing that kindness the way he did. My sincerest condolences to the family, I am truly sorry.

I was very fortunate to work closely with Tom as a Community Resource Coordinator for Elevate Energy. Tom was the heart of the team with his kindness, compassion and work ethic. He truly cared for those he served in the community and was a true gentle giant. We love you Tom and may you rest peacefully. My condolences to Jessica and the children may you be comforted during this most difficult time. Tom will truly be missed by all who loved him.
