We are sad to hear of Tom's passing. Our sympathy and prayers are with Nadine and the Maiers family. Tom will be remembered, and we will be forever grateful, for the vision and work he and Nadine completed to found North Crest Gymnastics and Dance. Our four children benefited greatly from classes in Dance, Karate, Gymnastics, etc. We all had so much fun! Tom and Nadine truly provided wholesome and character-building opportunities to benefit our children and the entire community. We will pray for Tom and the Maiers family during this time of grief and loss. Eternal rest grant unto Tom, O Lord, and may your perpetual light shine upon him. May he, and all the souls of the faithfully departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

We were very saddened to learn of Tom's passing. Tom was a classmate of me and Bill and although we only saw Tom at class reunion's, we certainly cherished the memories of Tom in high school. I am so happy to have had the chance to talk to both Tom & Nadine at our class reunion last month. Nadine and family, you have our sincerest sympathies.
