Tom was one of the good guys. Always fun to be around. We will all miss him terribly, but have some comfort of many happy memories. I know I will have a Slainte for him on St. Patricks days.

From one Irish person to another...

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

My deepest sympathy to Joy and Tom's family. We lost a really good man!

I was so shocked when I received the call from my brother Joe on Saturday evening about Tom’s passing. We had our ups and downs growing up, but I could always count on him. Both Tom and I decided to label ourselves Recovering Catholics, so I am hoping that we will see each other on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge where will see Duchess, Doobie, and Pumpkin and all of our other furry friends.

Is fada liom uaim, mo dheartháir.

I only got to meet Tom during a weekend in April of 2018 when I was there to meet a litter of puppies, but I could tell what a kind and special person he was. So sorry for your loss, Joye, and the extended family. My condolences to you all. RIP Tom.

Tom always made us feel welcome when Kathy and I made it over to Murphy's on a Sunday afternoon for a Bengals game. He was always cheerful and eager to chat, and he usually bought us a round. Great guy! Our thoughts are with his family.
