Tommy's unconditional friendship with my son's Geoff and Andy will always be cherished. Many great stories have been shared this week recalling their Cathedral days together, Thanksgiving dinner at the Brodie home, Geoff's wedding in Chicago and numerous visits along the way. We are sorely sad for his early departure. May God wrap his arms around Tommy. We look forward to the day when we meet again. Our best to the Ward family as they morn the loss of Tommy.

Tommy was one of the first friends I made at Cathedral High Scool and we have been close ever since. Tommy was always there for me when I needed him and he was as loyal as they come. He had an infectious laugh that would fill a room and he always made me feel loved and appreciated. I willl miss this special bond until the day I die. Friends like Tommy are so very rare and I am proud that he picked me to go through life with him.

Farewell my brother, you were loved.
