What can one say when they lose a husband, brother, uncle, grandfather and my childhood friend. No words can heal, or stop the heart or soul from feeling pain from Losing a Very Special Person!
I want all of Tommy's family especially my Dear and Oldest friend Eva to know that I am thinking of you in this time of your loss and asking God to tenderly care for you and the whole family while you all heal together.

Our Love and Prayers Are With You All!!

Eva I’m so sorry to hear of Tom’s passing. I’ve been thinking of him a lot lately. I worked with him in the Windsor Elks kitchen during bingo. All who worked with him enjoyed it. Nothing but good memories of Tom. He was a gentle giant, funny and caring. You’ll be in my prayers.
