Our Gratitude for Your Support

Dear Members of the CMU Community, 

We write today to express our immense gratitude for the outpouring of love we have received from the CMU community since the sudden passing of our son Thomas. The many expressions of support have been deeply touching and an incredible source of strength at such a difficult time. 

While we are heartbroken by this immeasurable loss, we are thankful for the compassion offered by so many in the Tartan family. Genuine human connection was so important to Thomas, so mourning in fellowship with our community has been especially meaningful. Thank you for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers and for wishing us peace. 

As we journey toward healing, our family is so grateful to be part of this special community that cares so deeply for one another. 

With gratitude,
Farnam and Tris
