Will always remember all the fun our two families had together over the years. You were a loving and kind Uncle and I will cherish the memories I have of you. God has welcomed you into heaven and may he give strength and comfort to your family.

So many wonderful memories of Uncle Tom over so many years. All the family times ours spent with yours. Enjoyed the visits from him and Aunt Janet while in Florida and the times we saw them on our Michigan trips home. He will be truly missed. My condolences to Aunt Janet and the whole Bechtel family.
Love Colleen & Mike
