Very sorry to hear of Tom's passing. I have so many fond memories of growing up in Cedar Bluff. XO Jacqui (Y)
Sorry to hear of the loss of Tom. Condolences from the family of Marvin Lerch.
So sorry to learn of Tom's passing. Cedar Bluff will miss one of its premiere citizens. Deepest sympathies.
Tom was a one of a kind character. Cedar Bluff has seen the end of an era. I knew Tom since 1969 or so, when he first came to Cedar Bluff to live. I'll miss his stories and our fishing trips most of all. I'll also miss his life "advice" that seemed to come from experience (some good, some bad!). Our sympathy is with you at this sad time. Dan L. & Sandy K.
Sory to hear about your loss...I always enjoyed talking to Tom around this little town of ours. Many days greeting him in the family restaurant, or just around. Always kind words from him. So sad that he's gone now. Take care and hang onto those precious memories. Gayle and Randy Laucamp
I was introduced to Tom in 1982 as "Uncle Tom". He was a great friend with a constant smile. I'll miss him.
Please except our deepest sympathies on your dads passing.
So sorry to hear of Tom's passing. Our sincere thoughts and prayers are with the family. Tom was a good friend and will not be forgotten.
Fond memories of Tom when I'd see him around town on my mail route! Always had a wave or a "hi"! My first memories of him are from my Dad and and their "stories". God bless you all and hold tight those wonderful memories you have!
Our heart goes out to the Lemburg family. So sorry for your loss, Tom was a great man to all, he will be missed by many.

you.May god give you peace.
So sorry for your loss. I enjoyed the conversations we had.
I liked Tom the minute I met him having coffee time at the Family Restraunt I admired his service and his WONDERFUL sense of humor. I saw him at Tiger Mart about two weeks ago and he said " shit they let you out of the house" during the entire time I would see him we would joke. I would say " who lifted the rock you were under ". I really like Tom he was so funny loved his stories and observations. He made me feel good right when I moved to Tipton. I loved running into him I always walked away laughing. Tom I will dearly miss running into you at store or around town. You will be remembered by me always. Sympathy to your family. Hey even when it was 110 degrees there was Tom in his long sleeves.
One of my daily Tiger-Mart customers, I looked forward to seeing each day. My prayers go out to the entire Lemburg Family in their loss of Tom.
PA PA Tom was a great father and grandfather. He will be dearly missed by everyone! Cindy and Kirk Sissel
