Doesn't seem possible... this happened so fast. It was just last month Jackie and Tom entertained us with such a nice lunch. Was so happy to see them get to the beach. Tom was such a good friend and so many great memories. We'll both really, really miss him. We love you Jackie.

Tom will certainly be missed. He had a wonderful sense of humor and was always fun to be with. My deepest sympathy to Jackie and the family.

I remember Tom just like his picture---always smiling & joking around. I knew he & his family since his sister and I became best friends in H.S. Tom was so much fun to be around and always had a special way of making everyone feel good about life through his humor. He will be missed by all who knew him and I'm happy to have had that pleasure!
