Camilla and family,
Please accept my deepest Sympathy... Tom was a wonderful person who I had I had the pleasure to work with and become his friend.
Tom came to work with myself and our team at Bon Secours Health System in VA. He was well liked and had so much to share with his teammates and the end users.
Tom also came to visit my husband and I when traveling thru PA. I have the greatest memories of Tom. His love for his Camilla and his family and the great pictures and life stories he shared with all of us .
I will always treasure the photo Tom framed me of the Ridley Park creek in Philadelphia.
Tom will be missed but he has left behind many fine memories and helped so many people.
Good Bless All, Phyllis Capone
