In Loving Memory of My Husband Thank you for your endless love that helps me through each day. You were my best friend. I miss your laughter, kind words, beautiful blue eyes and the way you could talk to anyone like you knew them forever. Thank you for the memories that will never fade away. In our flowers I still see you. You’re the man I loved and I was proud to be your wife. Every day in some small way I celebrate your life. I know you’ll never be that far from me as you live on, always in my heart.

I met Tom six years ago through his Father-in-law, Jim. He was definitely all about baseball, very friendly and soft spoken. He will be missed by all who knew him. Prayers for strength for his family.
