    Dear Gerri and all of the Dobry family,

    Brent & I were so sorry to hear of your loss. We will remember Tom for his warmth, smile and laughter, especially during Turkey Bowl discussions. I will especially remember when Tom fulfilled his bet with Ray and we found him cleaning the picture windows at Klinger Lake. Brent and Pattie (Drennan) Shreiner

    To all the Dobry Family
    I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Tom and I go back many years at the racetrack and I felt were friends from day one. I cannot believe both Tom and John are both together in heaven. Our loss but heaven’s gain. We will be praying for the whole family. Let us know if we can do anything for you!

    All our love

    Geri, Tom and Tim

    I am shocked and saddened to hear this news. Tom was a special person who always made me feel welcome back when we were growing up and has left this world much too soon. Heaven gained a special angel. I pray that all the fond memories will help comfort all of you during this most difficult time. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
