Tom was a great man and in recent years Judy Harvey's best friend. He brought not and happiness to Judy, when she needed it most. Tom was always showing us acts of kindness, like bringing us bagels! He was always welcome and we enjoyed when he came over to make a delivery and tell us what was going on in his world. We will miss him. Our condolences to his entire family.
