 To Art: 

At Rev. 21:4 it reads; "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away."

 He Will Call ( Job 14:13-15 )


Life, like a mist, appears for just a day, Then disappears tomorrow. All that we are can quickly fade away, Replaced with tears and sorrow. If a man should die, can he live again? Hear the promise God has made: 

He will call; The dead will answer. They shall live at his command. For he will have a longing For the work of his own hand. So have faith, and do not wonder, For our God can make us stand. And we shall live forever, As the work of his own hand.

Friends of our God, though they may pass away, Will never be forsaken. All those asleep who in God’s mem’ry stay, From death he will awaken. Then we’ll come to see all that life can be: Paradise eternally.
(See also John 6:40; 11:11, 43; Jas. 4:14 .)

I am so sorry for your loss, really sorry but I hope the words at Acts 24:15 will comfort you because it is an assurance that the dead will be resurrected in the future. Peace be with you.

 I loved Tommy very much, he was one of a kind. We met when I came to Alaska in the 1970's and he allowed me to stay at his trailer on Plack Road (with a bunch of other people who lived there at the time, like Bob Gras and my future husband, Scott Penwell). Tommy and I bonded in the kitchen of that little trailer, where we cooked up a storm for the frequent parties he held. He could always make me laugh. We lost track of each other in the ensuring years as Scott and I  moved our family to work in Mexico and later Asia, but Tommy will always have a special place in my heart. Rest in Peace, my friend.  Love, Vicki

 I met T Ball through Fred Streb I'm thinking.  He was quite the character.....  All of the High School memories with him and the "gang".  Basement parties at my folks house and other classmates houses.  And then there was the University of Oklahoma.  T Ball came to OU our Sophomore year and that part of history began.  He was ALWAYS in for a good party no matter where it was.  He was a stand up guy that really made a name for himself in Alaska.  I lost track of him a long time and reunited in Wellsville about ten years ago.  He came home to look after his mom.  That's the kind of guy he was.  R.I.P T Ball.  You will be missed.

Tom and I had many great times in Wellsville and beyond... Hiking in the woods at my grandfathers House on the Hallsport Rd., Riding our home made Mini bikes down the railroad grade to the cabin "Is Good" in Scio, The keg parties there, The school sporting events, bus trips, and dances, dressing up like cheerleaders and performing at the H.S. pep rally, Attending Oklahoma University in Norman OK, The Texas vs OU football games in Dallas, the fraternity parties at DKE, The road trips from Okla to Wellsville and back in a week or even a long weekend, riding in John Reunings suicide door Lincoln convertible, Halloween in 1966 when Tom sat on the cops hat and showed him his library card for ID, All the camping trips with Tom Field and Hank Gould, Weekends at my Mom and Dad's cottage at Rushford lake, Swimming, waterskiing and Boating, drinking a few beers, and always having one heck of a good time..!!! "T" BALL -- THANKS FOR ALL THE GREAT TIMES AND WONDERFUL MEMORIES..
