    To the family of Tom Seybold: I grew up in the West Baden church (my mother played the organ) and have such fond memories of Tom and Margie, Pauline and Johnny, and Hattie and Minnie. I remember the church picnics at their place between Paoli & French Lick, playing in the creek, and the geese. One time my friend and I were the only ones who showed up for choir practice, and Margie took us to Bloomington to shop as a reward. I was so sorry to hear that Tom had passed away. Your family is in my prayers.
