May our Lord be with you during this time. Do not be sad for God has called Tom home to paradise. Let us take comfort in knowing that we all will be reunited when God calls us home.. We both remember him singing in the church for our wedding. His smile and laugh will be rememberd. I was glade that I got to see and talk with him at Darlene's funeral. I have many memories of uncle Tom.

We fondly remember Pastor Hinz for his kind and cheerful manner in all that he did while serving our church at Our Redeemer. You could always count on a comforting sermon when he preached and often he would break out in song while in the pulpit to "make a point" from his sermon. When I think of him, a smile is on my face and he will always be remembered in that way.

Pastor Tom helped us through many ups and downs in our lives. He married our children, baptized our children and grandchildren, and shortly after his heart attacks, renewed our wedding vows for our 25th and even sang. He was always there to help us in our time of need, and strengthened our faith over many years. We always felt he was part of our family, as well as God's family.
Carl and Eloise Schwarz left a message on October 13, 2023:
Our entire family loved Pastor Hinz for all of the years at Our Redeemer. He helped us grieve through the deaths of Oma and Opa Schwarz and celebrate confirmation of our Nicole. His singing and sermons will always be remembered. We look forward to seeing him again in Heaven when our Lord and Savior comes soon again. Our sincerest condolences.
