Our family will forever carry the fondest of memories for the Culberth’s. They were such faithful and loving friends. Tommy and Marie were a part of our lives forever and will be sorely missed. They were such a comfort in our times of loss. You are all in our prayers during this time of sorrow. But, praise the Lord, to be absent here is to be present with Him. God bless you all.
