To the Benoit family,
My condolences on your loss. Tomi was always funny and family oriented. She will be deeply missed. She walks with the angels in heaven where there is no pain or sorrow. I was lucky to be called a friend by Tomi.

So glad I ran into you at at Walmart a few months back, so we could catch up and hug. My condolences to your sons, daughter-in-laws and grandchildren, I know how much family meant to you. Rest in Heavenly Peace my sister-in-law Tomi, love, prayers and hugs. May the good Lord bring Comfort and Peace to your family ....
