    Marge, I was Tom’s CSR at Fairrington and enjoyed our working relationship for the last 7 years. I only had the opportunity to meet him once but we laughed all the time on our phone calls and he was, by far, one of the most sincere people that has crossed my path personally and professionally. He will be missed more than words can say. My deepest condolences to you and your family. .

    Anyone who has experienced Tom in this life know he had that gracefilled spirit that left a forever imprint on ones heart. Being a childhood Sacred Heart School friend of his, I experienced his fun energy, his brightness in school and his great rhythm when he danced at our every Fridaynight dance at his cousins, Nancy’s home in Maywood, IL. To every one in his family, know I bless you with prayers and support at this time.
