To Colleen & Family, my dear dentist and friend Dr. Salmon was my dentist since I was ten years old. He was such a big part of my life - always asking me about my life. I am so sorry. I am heartbroken that I can't see him anymore, although happy for him that he is with his wife and family. I know Saint Josemaria will be looking for him as will many others. What a beautiful man he was and soul he will always be. Love, Angelo Vancheri

Dr. Tom Salmon was the best and most generous dentist! I am glad I was able to gift him Bears Tickets, Cubs, and White Sox tickets. I loved talking RC catechesis with him. I will miss him and my twice a year trips down to Oak Lawn and Evergreen Park! He will be missed! "May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind be always at your back, may the sun shine warm upon your face, and the rains fall soft upon your fields, and until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand."
Peace be with you Dr. Tom, Sr.
