    I’m sorry to say I never had a chance to meet Tom, though I did speak with him on the phone. I know of him through some of our staff and his son, Matt, and his brother, Bob. My heart goes out to Tom’s family and friends. The loss of a loved one is always hard to bear, and I pray God’s comfort and peace will soothe your tears and the whole now left in your lives.

    My deepest sympathy to all friends and family members that are grieving at this difficult time. I could tell that Tom loved his life and lived it to the fullest, enjoying time with his wife and wonderful family and a multitude of friends. Great memories will sustain you all until you meet again.

    We all will miss him greatly.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this sad time.
