To Darlene and Family,
We are so sorry to hear about the passing of Tom....at a time like this words seem to fail..... Zig and I have fond memories of Tommy through their younger years concerning their love and playing of sports. Our guys were always very competitive, but showed good sportsmanship, loved those fun days and friendship....I also remember you Darlene from younger years growing up in the same neighborhood . Then you and Tommy being together through many beautiful and blessed years of marriage. You two were also a customer at a bank I worked for in Exton, and it was always great seeing you and waiting on you. Please know our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time and we pray you and your family find peace and comfort in the treasured memories you shared together.

Tom and I played many ball games, sometimes on the same team, other times on opposing teams. We started on the Scott High School team, adult baseball league, Wagontown Flyers softball team and various other county softball teams. Tom had a very competitive nature but was also a gentleman win or lose. He was a great hitter and excellent outfielder. I will always remember our times playing ball. My condolences to Darlene and the family in the loss of Tom.

Darlene,
My first day on the job at Exeter as a driver was the first time I met Tom. He was the one person who enthusiastically welcomed me to our job. He was the one who always had a smile on his face for everyone. He will always be the person I think of in my memories of that first day.
We hurt for your loss but rejoice with Tom and his new life. He has stepped out of the constraints of time and space and is waiting to show you things you can't even imagine.
Love you

John Jessica and Pat

We want to let the Flood family know that our thoughts and prayers are with them. You were great neighbors and friends. The whole neighborhood couldn't wait for the progressive dinner each year to find out what kind of excursion or trouble you two (mostly Tom) got into. They were fun. Plus good memories of Lynne babysitting for him.

As a best friend of Jerry’s , I can say that “Mr. Flood” was his biggest fan! He and Mrs. Flood were at every game I can remember from Little League through Jerry playing basketball in college. He was such a positive force in our lives, always giving us hints and pointers that could improve our play, but mostly just being there for support. I miss the days of sleepovers where you could count on him greeting you with a hi-five and laughing until bedtime. He was truly a great man who will be missed, but remembered fondly. Rest In Peace, Mr. Flood.

I met Tom a number of years ago at North Star United Methodist Church. Talking to Tom was always a joy, for his gentle smile and positive yet quiet vibe was always reassuring. The loving, caring, and pleasant demeanor he and Darlene exuded was always authentic and inspiring. He will be greatly missed. Love, prayers, and hugs to Darlene and the entire Flood family. You are in my prayers.
