Thomas was my neighbour at the dinner table for approximately 2 years. I soon found him to be a gentle, intelligent person, who did listen to what people said and when he had something to contribute, he did in a polite and appropriate manner. We became friends in time and I shall miss his beautiful soul, and sincere smile, as well as his occasional teasing. I would also like to say that he loved his family with all his heart.
Goodbye my friend and maybe meet you in heaven some day.
Thomas , Linda and the twins have been friends to the Kovarik family forever. I still have a picture of their wedding when I was a little tyke of about 7 years old. The families always shared Christmas cards, semi-annual telephone conversations, and gatherings which were somewhat less frequent, and usually included the Schmidt's. When Thomas was widowed, and he was an empty nester, my Mom would invite him over for homemade dinners occasionally. He was delightful guest, and warm and caring person. I would go over to visit and help him solve technical problems with his gadgets, while enjoying a fine drab of aged scotch. We will all miss you Thomas.
Thomas , the Dad of Nicole was an inspiration to all as he had a passion and drive for Life like no other ! It was an honour and a privilege to have shared time enjoying the simple pleasures of life with Thomas ... Dinner, a glass of wine and a single malt Scotch along with a few laughs and stories.
Rest In Peace.
Thomas ,rest in peace we all will miss you, fond memories will remain in our heart
Thomas war unser Bruder. Wir waren sechs Geschwister. Jetzt sind wir nur noch drei. Alle sind über 80 Jahre, Walter über 90 Jahre alt.
Thomas fehlt uns, auch wenn er in der Ferne lebte!
Wir behalten ihm ein ehrendes Andenken! Er lebt in unsrer Erinnerung weiter!
Noch ganz lebendig ist uns sein Besuch in der Heimat 2018. Es gibt aber auch noch unzählige Erinnerungen, besonders aus unsrer gemeinsamen Kindheit!
Sie reihen sich wie Puzzleteile aneinander.
Wir vermissen unseren Bruder sehr! Er möge in Frieden ruhen!
Deine Geschwister Gertrud , Agnes und Walter
