    My condolences to Pat and all your family. Tom was a very special person to me. He was there for me for the passing of my wife Phyllis 2 1/2 years ago and I’m here for him now.
    I posted “Remembrance of Tom Olden Jr” to all his Corvette forums. The response was incredible for the love and affection they have for Tom, Pat and your family.
    I will miss you dearly my good friend.
    Your in the hands of the Lord.

    Dear Pat,

    How deeply we feel the grief you are experiencing now. I always felt that God gave us the capacity for memory so we can always remember those treasured moments with our loved one.

    Please know I pray for your soul to find peace in the many moments you and Tom shared together.

    Always, Pops Carol
