Tom was a brother of mine in the Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity at MSU. I'll always remember his smile and great sense of humor. I was happy to see him at our UpNorth AGR summer picnic we held in Petoskey last July. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Over 20 years ago Tom had a vision of a milker training school for dairymen. He described that vision to me and asked if I could create some natural looking udders that could be used as a teaching aid. After some experimenting, the udders were created and Tom's milker training school became a reality. Tom had a passion for dairy farming and milk quality. He will be greatly missed.

Tom was my fraternity brother and a wonderful person with a great spirit. He was compassionate about his brothers and fraternity life. Please accept my sincere sympathy to the family and know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Please accept my deepest condolences on the passing of your dear Mr. Herremans. May you draw comfort from all the wonderful memories you shared and from our Heavenly Father, who comforts us during our trials, (Psalms 46:1) God promises to resurrect those who have fallen asleep in death, through his son Christ Jesus our Lord. (John 5:28,29) When Jesus was on earth he demonstrated his ability to resurrect those who died. He will do so again on a global scale during his Kingdom reign. (Matthew 6:9,10)

Tom was one of the most enthusiastic members of the Dairy Practices Council where he seemed to touch everyone he met. When you saw him, his smile and firm handshake often said it all, but he always had a story to tell or some bit of insight that could only come from years of experience. He became a friend and mentor to many and his energy, enthusiasm and smile will be greatly missed. Our hearts are with all his family and friends.

Irene and Family, So very sorry to learn of the loss of your brother. May God give you strength and courage. Tom I remember so well from our high school days. Tom was always so kind to me and a friend. I have learned how Tom stayed in Ravenna and was a valued member of Ravenna's community. As you and I ventured out in the world we are certain to return to Ravenna one day.Tom was the salt of The Earth and to his whole family may God Bless you all. Sincerely, Dale A McAllister and Ja Marcus
