Condolences for ALL of the Menton family. You all are so fortunate to have had such a fine son and brother! He will be forever missed by so many. God graciously held out His Arms to receive Tommy into heaven. Tommy more than fulfilled his mission here on earth. He is reunited with family and friends and they share in praising our Lord.

May Tommy be at peace with the Lord...I taught Tommy at McGill-Toolen H.S. and pray that what he absorbed in class helped him in his life's journey. My heart/prayers go out to his dear Mother, Carmine, and the entire Menton family.
