    Our heartfelt sympathies are extended to all of Thomas’s family. We are so glad to have met the Culler’s Grandpa. He was warm and friendly and one could tell he was happiest when surrounded by his grandchildren. He will be missed. Our prayers for his family is that peace comes with the joy of the many memories he provided.
