We are so sorry to hear about the loss of our great neighbor Tom. We hadn't been neighbors for a long time, but it seemed like we had, because we got along great and our kids play well together. Tom was always helpful, friendly, easy to talk to, and such a cheerful person to be around. We had just talked to him the day before, while cleaning the snow of our driveways, and he was so excitedly talking about the vacation he had just returned from with his family. It was hard to believe the news the next day.
He was such a hard working individual, always keeping the yard and around house clean, and while also working full time, and helping out with the kids. He was such a good father, so considerate, and such a good hearted person. While we are sad to have lost such a great soul, we are happy that we got to know him. You never know what kind of neighbors you're going to get, but we got lucky with Tom and his wonderful family. Our heartfelt condolences to the whole family and his loved ones. May he rest in peace and may his memory be eternal! Respectfully, the Shatku neighbors @ 525
