The following quote is taken from the funeral sermon for Thomas L Hart, written by Pastor Glenn Kennedy of Cashmere United Methodist Church, July 13, 1991:
"Shortly after [Tom] and Velma were married, Velma's mother died, leaving [Velma's] 6 youngest sisters and brothers without a home (her dad had passed away a few years earlier).The kids were going to be farmed out among several relatives.Tom and Velma -- still pretty young themselves -- said 'no sir'!All 6 went with them to Valdez, Alaska and finished growing up with the Harts.Tom didn't have to do that -- it was just the right thing to do.He didn't desert his ideals in the face of a tough challenge.Velma told me everyone of those kids turned out great!"
