So many wonderful memories inside the O’Gara home as a teenager . Sleepovers and sitting at the dinner table . Tom was such a gentle , sweet man . He and my Dad had become good friends as a result of my friendship with Patty . I remember Graduation night gathering at my house afterwards . There was love and laughter as Patty and I went on our way to meet friends while our parents spent that evening together as friends as well . While I am filled with sadness at this difficult time I cannot help but smile with gratitude in my heart for that time in my life . I know you are now at peace Tom . Until we meet again . ❤️
