To the Olson/Ernst Family: I was so shocked to see Tom's obituary in the newspaper. He was too young to leave us. I graduated from Vermillion High School with Tom. He was a very nice person. He always spoke with me when we saw one another. My parents, Ella and Ole Gray, were friends with Tom's parents, as well as with the Ernst family. I have good memories of times spent visiting with Cecil and Doris. Tom will be missed. You are in my thoughts at this sad time. Angie
