My heart goes out to family and to all who knew and loved Tommy. I wish that we were closer together and that I knew him like we did when we were younger. We only got to see each other once a year, when we went for our annual trip from Maine down to Massachusetts.
We would always go to Tommy's house ( my uncle Ed and aunt Joan) for dinner when we were there visiting. Aunt Joan would always make her lasagna. She would cook it all day while us kids hung out.
I really loved going there...even if only once a year.
I know that Tommy was a good man and that he will be greatly missed.
Love and peace to all.
