To The Family of Tom Thompson
Don't know where to start. I got to know Tom thru Carter Day back in the 1990's when I worked at Scott Moller Co. I talked to Tom all the time needing parts & info on Carter Day equipment. I would call him he would help no questions asked. We got to have a great relationship thru Carter Day. Over the years of knowing him he got to be a great friend to me. We talked all the time. If he needed something from me I would help him, If I needed him he would help me. When he retired from cater day They lost a man with lots of knowledge about the equipment that he sold. I lost a true friend to me .Rest in piece Tom . Ross Renecker Fargo ND.

Tommy was one of a kind, coming into our lives and taking on loving my mom and her 4 daughters. Let me tell you, we sure didn't make it easy for him either. As years past and life changed, Tommy found his forever love, Melodee. Thank you Mel for the unconditional love and compassionate care you provided Tommy. I am so grateful to have had such a great man love me like a daughter. Thank you for your unconditional love, guidance, laughs, support and encouragement over the years. I will do my best to make you proud pops! RIP Tommy T 🌹

We cherish the memories of good times bowling with Tommy. He always had such a warm heart , friendly smile and a big hug every time we saw him. We always think of him on Fridays nights...

It was an honor to have met him and share a couple hours each week for several years during bowling season getting to know him. Frank also enjoyed time on the golf course with him.

Rest In Peace, Tommy♥️

I had the pleasure to work and travel quite a bit with Tommy. He was very good at what he did and very well liked by our customers. More than that Tommy was a good man and a good friend. He liked to laugh and we did quite a lot of that while driving around our territory. I think of him often and will miss him greatly.

We at Philip Rahm International, Inc. had the pleasure of dealing with Tommy for many years while he was at Carter Day. We found him most helpful and tireless in trying to keep our customers satisfied with our service and that of Carter Day. We are deeply saddened to hear of Tommy's passing, and our thoughts are with the family.

Melodee - On behalf of Joe Miglieri Sr and myself - our deepest sympathies to you and your family on the loss of Tom. I know how much Joey loved him and I know how much you did too; he will be missed. He was a great guy and I enjoyed the times Joe and I spent with him and getting to know him. Unfortunately, I'm overwhelmed with Joe's care and having surgery in a few days myself so I won't be able to make the services, but you are in our thoughts and prayers. Love Lynne and Joe
