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

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.

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.

Dearest Fr. Tom,

It's ToB Thursday again! We had a lovely discussion today focusing on love, truth, and freedom. Our hearts and our minds were definitely on you though, as we could hardly go a minute without sharing a story of you or of something you said. Perhaps you were with us this evening?! :) I hope so! It certainly was nice to think of you being so near!

We did have a sobering moment, though. Someone asked how long it had been. Someone else quickly responded, "a week and a half". And then there was silence. Silence, as each one of us came to the independent realization that it has already been two weeks since you left us! Oh, Fr. Tom, two whole weeks already! I miss you so much!

I'm happy knowing that you're peaceful and ever-joyful as part of the Communion of Saints, Fr. Tom! How amazing it must be to gaze upon the face of our Lord! I actually consider it a great gift from you that I, too, feel peaceful right now. I appreciate knowing that I can talk to you whenever I want, and I appreciate even more knowing that you're listening! Thank you!

I love you so much, Fr. Tom, and am ever-grateful for your continued presence in my life.

Thank you Father Thomas for your faithfulness to God, your community and my family. God has truly blessed us to have you in our lives while living in SLC. Our children remember you with found memories of joy! Your peaceful, joyful, and playful manner was such a comfort to us in our time of need. I know that God is well pleased with the work you did for him on this earth. Now you are with our Lord praising and glorifying him! Thank you for you agape love! You will be in our hearts forever and hope to see you again in heaven. God bless you Father Thomas!

Love,

It is with great sadness that I learned about Father Tom's illness and death today. My family met Father Tom (we called him Father Thomas) in Salt Lake City--my kids who are grown now--fondly remember the wonderful reunion of the Pilgrim Friars and Father Tom's great singing and guitar playing. We will always remember "Push the Stone Away" from Easter Masses.
