Dear Diane, Leslie and extended Family,

We are deeply saddened by your loss, dearest friends. Although we didn’t know Tommy, we can still understand how very hard and painful this must be for you, especially since you could ‘t even be with him due to the COVID19 rules. This was particularly harsh and our hearts and sympathy are with you at this minute as the service is progressing.
Please know that our most sincerely felt prayers are with you and we wish that we could be. We are there in spirit and May the Lord grant you solace and peace! 🕊 Linda, Kathryn and John

Tommy was a wonderful person, always sharing a smile or funny anecdote. While I am saddened by the loss, I know he is at home with our Father and no longer in pain. My deepest condolences to his family and loved ones.

Thank you for all of the childhood and adult memories. My life will not be the same. I had plans for us. You were a good brother. You were a God fearing man who thanked the Lord for everything. Your faith was so strong. I will miss you greatly. All your pain and grief is over. You are at peace forever and home in heaven at last. Your work on earth was done and God called you home. This is so hard, but I know you are happy and at peace. I will see you on the other side.
I love you,
Diane
