I've been trying to think of some words to offer, other than the obligatory 'Like' on Facebook. I didn't know Tom personally very well; rather I knew of him more as a staple ingredient at St. Michael's...always there, just not right in the forefront. He was a dad - one of the many parental figures contributing to that community. I did know his kids and spent countless hours growing up with them in school and in youth group. If Tom's remarkability can be evidenced anywhere, it is in his children. I know them to be kindhearted, hardworking, compassionate and supportive and I wish them comfort during the days and years ahead.
