So sorry to hear that Tom has passed. i ran into him only a couple times since high school, but he was always friendly and eager to chat. I will forever remember his eager smile and friendly personality. It's nice to have known a person whose greeting was was always sincere. See ya later, Tommy.

My sincere condolences to family and friends. May you find comfort in your loving memories, and in God's promise to soon "swallow up death forever" and "wipe away the tears from all faces." (Isaiah 25;8) Rev 21:4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. With deepest sympathy and heartfelt prayers.
