  9. Judy, Michelle, Jess, Lewis, and all your families…Your husband, dad, grandpa’s memories will live on forever in your sharing of his life, and the Amish community as well. They all loved Tom so much. He brought joy to the faces of little ones with his ability to make them laugh and shower them with kindness. Parents could rely on him to get them where they needed to be. I think they would agree that he was the best driver their community could have. They will miss him deeply. Whenever the children at Jess’ school shared stories about him, he wasn’t Mrs. Miller’s dad, he was “Tom Boehme”! May God be with you all and hold you up till you regain your own strength again. Love and prayers to you all.

  10. You have my deepest sympathy. Your family has another angel. I bet Jenny and Tom are having great family discussions

Tom was respected and admired by those who knew him and though he will be missed, his memory will be cherished always in the hearts of those who loved him. My love and condolences to Judy and family.
