Tommy was one of my best friends at St. Bernard’s, before I moved to Galion, in 51. I haven’t spoken with him much since. He was a great friend and I’m sure his nature carried on through his life.
You have my deepest sympathies. God Bless you.
My condolences to you and your family. My sister, Vickie, speaks highly of Tom and his family.
May God Grace you with peace and love eternally.
My sincerest condolences for your entire family over your loss. Praying for all of you.
We are so sorry to hear of the loss of your husband, dad, grandfather and brother. You are all in our prayers.
