A message of thanks

To the editor:

On behalf of my family I can’t express our thanks for the support and concern with the loss of Tom Peart.

He was a great son-in-law, father, husband and friend. He touched many people.

I came from a small town and the support is great there. But Fort Dodge is great also. I can’t believe all the people who were on the sidewalks showing their respect for Tom the fireman. I don’t want to leave anyone out but the Fire Department, Police Department and city were great. Tom had so many brothers by being a firemen, Now his boys have many uncles.

The Messenger and Fort Dodge Press did a very nice job on the coverage. I want to thank both of them for leaving the family alone. Thanks to the Fort Dodge area.
