    Bonnie: I am so sorry to read of Tom's passing.  You know he was a very, very special friend  to me for many years.  
    Please extend my sympathies to his family and know that I'm thinking of you.  He was quite a guy!

    Fondly, Barb

    Although I was not as close to Tom as many of you - as I had just recently met him just a few years ago - our visits together were always very special.  What a wonderful person to know  - and I am so fortunate to have met him.  God Speed, Tom, for you are now young and free again, skiing, traveling where ever the winds may take you in the vast and beautiful paradise.  Your travels shall never end now, as you reunite with all of your cherished family and friends that went before you. You made us smile and laugh.  Thank you Tom, for being you and changing the world with your butterfly affect. Our condolences to his beloved family and friends.

    Bonnie:

    Joan and I are deeply saddened to learn of Tom's passing. He was a wonderful and generous friend to us and to the National Park Service and all of his friends at Lincoln Home National Historic Site. It is difficult to recount all of the contributions that Tom made over the years towards insuring a deeper understanding of Abraham Lincoln. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

    Sincerely,

    Lawrence and Joan Blake - Springfield, Illinois

    Mr Booth's first teaching position after graduation from WIU Was at Lake Park High School, Medinah, IL He captured the hearts and minds of all the students as well as other faculty members  He was very involved in the school's activities and was greatly responsible for getting the students to participate in a newly opened high school which occurred in 1956.    May you be at peace
