Dear Cannarozzo family,
Please accept my condolences.
Tom was a wonderful human being and he had this way of lighting up a room with his warm, reassuring smile.
Tom played baseball for my father, retired Revere High baseball coach Al Blasi, who respected Tom as an athlete and as a young man. He was one of my father's favorites, and the two of them could talk for hours about baseball.
My dad is dealing with his own health problems and regrets that he could not pay his respects to Thomas, who graduated a year ahead of me. I always thought he was a good guy who came from a fine family.
I am sorry for your loss.
