My heart goes out to your family at this difficult time. I want to express my sympathy and let you know that my thoughts are with you.

Over the years, the more I got to know Tom the more I respected Tom. Tom was one of a very few having the bark sometimes of a Pit bull on steroids but the bite of a Shih Tzu or miniature potty trained chihuahua. Many discussions with Tom both in fun and serious showed me how knowledgeable in so many areas and proficient in so many other areas, he was, that at times, I found intimidating but at the same time I admired and fully respected Tom's abilities and capabilities and almost more importantly Tom's silent compassion's which unfortunately some could not see. Tom's passing has left a void in my gut that I know will be long lasting.

Marian and family. Sorry to hear the news. Thoughts are with you.❤️

Condolences to the family. We are thinking of all of you.

Marian, thinking of you and your family at this very sad time and extending our sincerest sympathy.
