Messages of Condolence

  1. The Antique world knew Tommy, loved Tommy and will dearly miss Tommy! His laugh, his smile and his wit….is why we all love him. To Joe…please know how much we love and care for you. To Rose…know that God is right there by you. My heart, my prayers and my respect is what I offer today, tomorrow and when we meet again.

  2. My Dearest Aunt Rose……
    My heart goes out to you as I shed tears for your loss. Tommy was the sweetest, kindest, and most wonderful son any Mother could have have been blessed with. And you the most precious Mother to him. Know I am thinking of you and praying for you. Sending all my love.


  3. Despite the overwhelming sadness we feel over Tom’s passing, it is impossible for us to think about Tom without SMILING. We all face adversity in our lives and Tom certainly faced more than his fair share. But he not only faced it, he soundly beat it. Throughout the 23 years we were privileged to know this wonderful man, he was always a delight to be around. His constant cheerful demeanor, wry wit, contagious laughter and broad smile are just a few of the many things we will always remember and treasure.

    To our dear friends Joseph and Rose, we pray that knowing Tom is now in God’s loving embrace will comfort you in this most difficult time.

    God bless you both.

  4. Rose and Joe ,Wink and I send our deepest condolences. His sense of humor and sweet smile will never be forgotten..
    We will remember you both in our prayers.

  5. What a gentleman!…and what a gentle man. What a wonderful sense of humor. Shocked to hear of his passing. Rose and Joseph, Please accept our deepest sympathy. I smile at memories of my 20 years knowing Tom…I hope that after the tears subside, you can do the same. May God bless you both.
