Tommy will always be in our hearts. He was a loving, caring friend and husband & father.
We will miss his calmness and his personality. We would visit each year and it was more than a vacation to us. He would sometimes get upset when Marianne & I would go to the Casino, warning us about the panthers. Which we never did see. Than when got home with empty pockets, he gave us that little Irish smile as if to say I tried to tell you too. He would always tell me he was coming to PA for a visit in his red Jeep ,but unfortunately, he wasn't able to travel.
He will truly be missed, but we will love him forever.
