My deepest condolences to the Horne Family members. Tom was a good friend a log time ago, we were both Kawartha Field Naturalist members. Because of certain circumstances, we lost touch with each other many years ago. I regret very much to hear about his passing.

Dear Louise and family,
Please accept my condolences. I worked for Tom in the late 70’s in the South Main Office of GM. He was great to work! I’m sure he is greatly missed. Peter Gruneberg

Feb. 2007 Tom truly enjoyed feeding the critters at his and Louise's place. The biggest eaters were the White-tailed Deer. They got used to Tom and trusted him. He also cleaned off and filled the bird-feeding platform, and there was a special place for the squirrels! The Wild Turkeys followed him around.
Unfortunately, after many years of feeding, the Coyotes learned that this was a good place to find a meal, so ever-conscientious, Tom stopped putting out food for the critters that the Coyotes liked to eat.

Dearest Louise and other members of tom's family, Wwe want to offer you all our deepest condolences. Tom was such a pensive, helpful man. We will miss this gentle but determined person with his strong inner force.
Sadly, Brian and Anne Barbour, Coboconk”
We will remember Tom with you, Louise when you two led the Kawartha Field Naturalists around your property and down the Ferguson Rd. right-of-way. Here Tom is hugging a fairly large Black Cherry tree that he pointed out to us. His tip was "The bark looks like 'Burnt Cornflakes'. So remember that B.C. stands for Burnt Cornflakes or Black Cherry." Tom loved his trees.
