    Ive known Tom since grade school; What a loss this is!!! Tom helped so many ppl and he was there if you needed him. He was a TRUE FRIEND. He truly loved his family and all his grandchildren; I’m at a loss for words but I must write that he was truly a Godly man. When my neighbor was in the hospital, he reached out to his wife and took her to the store when she truly needed a ride. I just can’t reiterate enough how good of person Tom was and how much he’ll missed here on earth. Until we meet again my friend, RIP … Patricia Fisher xoxo

    To all of Toms’ family: My sincerest thoughts and prayers are with you all . Tom was a rare gem, and for whatever reason God thought he needed him more than we do..I’m not so sure. For all who knew him, our lives were better for it. Rest easy Tom, you deserve paradise.
