  1. Tom was the epitome of a gentleman. Seeing how he so lovingly cared for his late wife even while he was sick himself, was inspiring and a beautiful testament to his love and commitment. He did what many can not or will not do. I was truly blessed to have known him. I will miss visiting with him, but I know he's happy in Heaven reunited with his beloved wife Pat and take comfort that he's no longer suffering. My condolences to the family for their loss.

    We loved having Tom and Pat as neighbors and friends, they were wonderful, thoughtful, and caring people and the world is better for them having been among us. We enjoyed vising and talking with Tom, through the good times and the difficult ones. They will be missed, the neighborhood will not be the same without them. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.
