Condolence From: Marissa
Condolence: In this time of great sadness there is good news. The Bible promises a resurrection of the dead to perfect health on a beautiful paradise earth. The scriptures prove that this will happen in the near future. (Acts 24:15; Revelation 21:3, 4; 2 Timothy 3:1-5) Please don’t lose hope. You are in our prayers.

Condolence: Our sympathies go out to your family. Mr. Justus was my principal, my boss and very compassionate individual. He will be missed. His commitment to the schools of Buchanan Co. is unmatched. His dedication is something we all can aspire to in this world. Again our deepest sympathy in your loss.

Condolence: Blessings on you, Tom, who recently joined Heaven's Communion. Prayers and love for Your family and circles of friends, and especially Bonnie Sue.

And so much gratitude to God that this good, gentle, humble and loving educator and servant touched so many lives. The Words of Micah are so apt for Tom who acted justly, loved tenderly, and walked humbly with your God. Well done. Well done.

Condolence: Bonnie and family,

Mr. Justus will be missed and remembered by school administrators and employees who had the privilege of working in his administration. He treated us with respect, trust, kindness, empathy, understanding and professionalism.

Tom understood how to grow a strong, successful system. He trusted employees and gave them control over their schools and programs. He understood shared control led to shared responsibility and with that understanding, he built a system where he literally kept a shelf full of folders which he called “folks”. And those folks were begging to work in his system. WE, then current employees, were the lucky ones.

Seek peace and lean on God’s word in the path that lies ahead. Find comfort in knowing that Tom was admired and loved by hundreds of employees. He cultivated more than his beautiful garden of flowers and plants. Tom cultivated the ground of professionalism and trusted us to grow as coaches, teachers and eventual administrators under his wise till.

I was never in his office that I was not offered a Diet Coke and a smile! And occasionally, yes, I freely admit, that even this retired, principal/English teacher scurried off the hill back to GHS and immediately found a dictionary or googled another unfamiliar word! That was life under Mr. Tom Justus. And life was Good!

Be Blessed.

In Faith,
Leslie Horne

Condolence: Mr. Justus was a great man. When he was the principal at HHS he would go out of his way to take care of the officials. He would make sure that we had food, drinks and whatever else we needed to make our time there the best it could be. Rest in peace Mr. Justus. I will keep all of the family in my thoughts and prayers. May God comfort you all through this time of loss.

Condolence: Dear Bonnie and family, we send our heartfelt prayers at your loss. I would like to share with his family that 35 years ago Tommy saved my father's life in a near fatal car accident.

Condolence: Bonnie, Setema, TomBoy

My deepest condolences to you all. So many memories of your dad growing up around you all like when everyone was at Roseann or the few times I was down at your home.

Your dad always seemed to have a great story to listen to. He was such a presence in any room. Going to miss him also. I still remember that blue El Camino of his. Take care.

Condolence: Ms. Bonnie, TomBoy, Setema and all the grandchildren and other relatives of Tommy P. I am so sorry to hear about Tommy's passing. I admired him from the time I had him in high school biology until he was my boss in the school system. There was no finer man or friend or co-hort than Tommy. I will always admire him for what he has done for the school system. RIP Mr. Justus---you definitely influenced my life in more ways than one.
