    Dear Bernadine & Family,
    Our deepest condolences with the passing of Tom. May you all have the strength to cope with this great loss. He was a great man and will be missed by many. Praying that the Lord give you the comfort to deal with this.

  • Alan Napier says:

    My deepest condolences to Berna, Francis and all the family. I had the honor and privilege of spending many days and weekends at the Forber home when they still lived at Sacramento Place in Calgary and had many visits with Anna in the late 70’s after they had moved to Westbank. Thomas was a man of great strength and gentle character who had a warm and very generous heart. I’ll always treasure the memory of his unconditional acceptance and approval. My Prayers are with the whole family that they will find comfort and peace in this time of deep loss.
