Sending my most heartfelt condolences to all the family of Tom Kleber, Sr. The world lost such a wonderful father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He was a second father to me for so many years. I will miss his sense of humor and his candor, whether welcomed or not. He had such a generous heart and giving spirit. Heaven is a better place since he arrived
