    Today, January 22, 2011 marks the second anniversary of Fr. Tom returning home to his Father. During the year I pray for him, and also ask him to pray for me during my trials. God bless his soul.

    Dear Fr. Tom, from your Eternal Life, I ask you please for your special intercession for my mother, Ina Rubi, who now has a caringbridge.org journal & guestbook.  She is battling stage 4 lung cancer.  My Dear Mother is from Prescott Valley, AZ, where she is an active member of St Germaine Parish .  I am hopeful that a Catholic Priest will visit her while she is inpatient in Tijuana, Mexico.  This needs special intercession at this very moment.  I Thank you! ...And A Very Happy Divine Mercy Sunday to you and your family, friends and fellow Dominicans, Alleluia!  Kiss Our Merciful Lord for me please and thank him for me, too! Love & Prayers, Michelle

    As I think you know, we still think about you a lot, Tom.  Thanks for all your help, your words of advice, and your friendship--for being there.  Love continues beyond the borders of this world.

    Just read Mark Shea's - January 21, 2009 article posted on CatholicCity. Have forwarded to all priests on my address book as a thanksgiving for all that they do.

    We visited Blessed Sacrament a few weeks before Fr. Tom's passing, and lucky for us he was saying the Mass. He related a funny story about his father who has Alzheimers, which was exactly what I needed to hear since I had just learned the upsetting news that my mother has Alzheimers also. In that short sermon he reminded me to look for the humor in everything and trust the rest to God. Maybe it wasn't just luck that we attended that Sunday afterall. Fr. Tom made a big difference in many lives and will continue to do so as one of God's special messengers.

    It is with such a heavy heart that I write this message...I just learned of Father Tom's passing tonight. What a true blessing he was to all who were fortunate enough to be graced with his friendship, guidance, and love. He married my sister and her husband 15 years ago and has felt part of our extended family ever since. His love and endless work improving the lives of so many will remain a true inspiration for us all. We send you our love and prayers and gratefulness to have known you.

    Fr.Tom ~ I know you are gone from our sight but I truly believe you are with us now more than ever. You are still helping others. Others have learned of this site because of you and now it is helping others in their time of need. Dear Fr.Tom, please pray for us as we pray for you.

    With much sorrow I learned of the passing of Father Tom Kraft. I did not know him as Father Tom, but as Tom, my friend from Eastern Washington State College (1973-1975). We learned after we met that our parents had actually known each other in years past - good Italian families. Tom took me to McDonalds and ice skating on an outdoor pond, a new experience for me. We also went to a college dance together (I still have the pictures). He was always the perfect gentleman and I knew even then that he was destined for a rich and fulfilling life. We lost touch after college, but I thought of him often. My deepest condolences go out to his family and friends. He will be greatly missed.
