In loving memory of a true gentleman, Tom was an inspiration and demonstrated real strength of faith and character through the physical adversity he lived with. He always had a smile and a story to share. Both he, and his wife, Linda, allowed God to lead them through every step of their loving lives together. Rest in peace.

Mr. Thomas McAvoy was a very special patient and friend to the Pulmonary staff at UAB Hospital. I was especially fond of he and his Dear and most attentive wife. It was evident many times that he was having difficulty and physical discomfort, but he always managed to smile and express convincingly his gratitude and appreciation to all who did anything for him. It didn't matter what your role or title was, he was always kind. One of my greatest memories was of him returning to the unit a few weeks after an extended stay. He dressed quite handsomely in his plaid button-down collar shirt and khaki slacks, shoes shined and polished, walking and looking so good. I remember his signature smile being even bigger that particular day. We were ALL so happy for he and Mrs. McAvoy. I'll treasure that good memory of him!
On behalf of the Nursing staff on S6 Pulmonary, UAB, we extend our deepest sympathy and sincere condolences to his wife, family and friends during this time, and in the days ahead.
