Condolences for Tom Pratt
I cannot say how much I will miss you. It is very difficult to accept that you are gone. Losing a brother is like no other pain I have have ever felt. My heart is totally broken and my world just got smaller. Until we are together again, I love you.
So sorry for you loss Christi Drage and family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.
We are so sad to see this news, our condolences to all family and friends. Tom and I shared one high school class together and drove the teacher nuts by switching seats so he never got our names correct. Fond memories of the little time we got to spend together. Rest in Peace Cuz, prayers to all.
Terry and family so sorry for your loss, may he R.I.P., hold those memories in your heart. With sincere sympathy.😇🙏
What a surprise it was to hear of the death of my cousin Tom. The memories I have of Tom as a child were always ones of laughter. I remember we would go to our Grandma and Grandpa Helgets house in Friend Nebraska. Spend many hours walking around the town, the gravel roads outside of town, and just having fun like young kids would do.(trying to stay out of trouble). LOL Although I had not seen Tom in many years it sounds like he was a great father, husband, and friend. He will be greatly missed by everybody. Rest in peace Cuz.
I still feel like this is a dream! One of my absolute favorite memories was of us up at the ridge when Tom introduced me to the wonderful mix of regular Kraft Mac n cheese with Spiral Kraft Mac n cheese…life changing and I think of him every time I make it! Also during that trip he was stunned I had never seen Blazing Saddles…a Mel Brooks movie! So we watched it and I laughed so hard at how he would recite every single line with the best facial expressions! He will be so missed by so many…and Diane I will always be here for anything you may need!! Love and prayers and hugs sent your way!!! RIP Tom! ❤️
Dianne and family…I’m am so very sorry for your loss. my dear ridge friend and neighbor you will be greatly missed.. I’m happy and blessed i got to know Tom. spend many late nights and Early mornings together and by the big fires. Lots of laughs and Memories made. Till we meet again. Ride on 🏍🏍 RIP My friend ❤️🙏🏼
So sorrry to hear about your loss. He was taken way too soon. My thoughs and prayers are with you.
I will forever cherish The Ridge, watching the Big Dipper races with you at the fire pit, being jealous of your open concept tool shed design, your furniture burning finds around town and up in smoke gatherings, watching MyTV and laughing at the guy “driving” the submarine with an actual steering wheel, revelling in how many times that you could use fkn in a sentence and it still making sense. Shaking my head in disbelief that you are gone.
To a great friend and work mate. You’ll be missed.
Dianne, I’m so sorry for your loss. Tom will truly be missed. I’m so glad you two got to go to Australia for a wonderful adventure. Hugs and prayers for you and your family. Rest in peace Tom and one last evening to you.
Diane and Family
Didn’t get to spend much time with Tom but the times when the family was together he would have us all laughing the whole time ! I told him many times he should have been a commedian. He was such a good person. What a shock ! I know I will see him again later in lilfe. We love you guys so much. If you need any help with anything let us know.
Diane my sincere condolences for your loss of Tom – remembering our good old days of jet skiing- we still think of you two often. Contact me if you would like to talk
Hugs Joyce Sedlak and Rich
