Tom Roush cared about people all over the world, and his reach was so broad that a single memorial service just isn’t enough. He will be remembered in Michigan this summer and at the PASS Summit in November, but information about the main services celebrating his life follow.

Tom’s family is establishing a scholarship for people he cared a lot about:

  • Those striving to learn more about SQL.
  • Nurses who want to pursue continuing education in palliative care or in working with cancer patients. The nurses Tom and Cindy loved, the ones who were the most amazing, competent, and compassionate, all had extra training, and Tom’s family wants nurses who choose to work with cancer patients to have the opportunity to learn new ways to help.
