Tom I'm so sorry for the loss of your Dad. I remember when i would stop over your house in '63 heading to school and your Dad would drive us over on his way to work. I also remember times when he wasn't going into work and he would still get up and take us to school. He always got us there on time.He drove us until you got that '61 white chevy, I wonder if he helped you get that. I look froward to seeing you soon. Peace, Craig Piercy

Dear Tom,
We are very sorry to hear about your Dad's passing. He was a very nice man and always told me to say hi to my mom, "Lucille from Syosset", everytime we chatted in the front yard. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family...Rob and JoAnn

His passing made my heart cry, we will always remember him sitting on the bench singing classical music to Donna, and playing ping pong each weak, often telling us stories of his youth and how he came to live next to us. May God hold you in his arms as you are truly blessed.

Dear Tom, to us your dad was always a good man,something we could tell by the love he had for his wife and because he had a hand in raising such great children. We know that because we know you. Our love and prayers are with you and Anna, and his many grandchildren.

Mr.Panas was a lovely gentleman. We enjoyed our visits with him- he was a very intelligent man with many interesting stories from his life ! How wonderful that his family had him for such a long life & that he lived to see the wonderful family that he & his wife raised. Pam and Mort
