Dear Marie and Family,
So sorry for your loss, Tom was such a great man. He was always smiling and willing to lend a helping hand to anyone who needed it. I will miss his stopping by just to say hi when he was going by and I was outside with the dogs. I so enjoyed when we got together for lunch and got to hear the wonderful stories told my both Tom and Marie. The world truly has lost a great soul and a truly great man. You have touch my heart forever and will be missed by all who have been blessed to have know you.

Tom was and will continue to be a bright light in my life. His compassion, humor and love of life remains an inspiration. Tom and Marie took me into their life as if I was born one of their own. They have nurtured me as a new Catholic and encouraged me in all my endeavors.

God speed, Tom. We'll see you on the other side.

I have known the Lee family for over 30 years. I was involved with the family in parish theatre group back in the Brooklyn days. Tom's son Mike and I have been friends for many years and share a lot of memories together. I cannot tell you how sorry I am of Tom's passing. The entire Balenzano family wishes to express their sincerest condolences and will keep the Lee family in our thoughts and prayers.

How much I would have missed if I'd never met Tom and Marie through a mutual and dear friend a couple of brief months ago. My impromptu birthday dinner and "pool party" at the Lee house was a complete joy and a memory to treasure. I am sorry for not having more time to know him, but grateful for getting the chance at all.

Our thought and prayers are with all of you. Tom was a special person to all of us and as we take time to reflect on how he influenced our lives... Whats a pleasure to know him.
