    Dear Marilyn and Family:
    We are saddened to hear of Tom’s passing. When we saw you both a couple of weeks ago he was his old smiling self. I’m glad we had the pleasure of knowing him for so many years. He was a great guy and Mike always enjoyed dealing with him at John Deere.
    Marilyn, please know that you, Pam, and Jenny are in our prayers. May God hold you in His tender care in this time of grief.

    Dear Daniels Family,
    We want you all to know Pam and I are thinking of you and wishing you peace during this time of grief. Tom was such a great person to know and was a role model for being a business owner and friend. I will never forget his work ethic, honesty, loyalty and sense of humor. Laughter was the rule of the day as he would tell some story. Many times I left there with my side hurting. He helped me countless times with advice and direction and was the best mechanic and “fixer” I have ever known. His methodical approach to solving problems inspires me to this day. I shall remember him always. Best wishes to you all, Phil Ramsey

    To the Daniels Family,
    From Tom’s cousin, Sam Merrifield
    Tom and I were together often during our pre-teen years and we met only twice since then. His mother, Midge, was my dear aunt. I have many memories – my deepest sympathy. (St. Charles, Missouri)
