From Tom: “I want to sincerely, from the bottom of my heart, thank each and every one of you that has sent thoughts and prayers, shared kind words and uplifting encouragement, texted me or messaged me to check in (I know I’m not the most timely responder), or even to let me know I’m being thought of. You, all of You have been my people.”To plant a beautiful memorial tree in memory of Thomas Rogers, please visit our Tree Store
