Dear Leigh Ann and family,
Please forgive my delayed expression of sympathy. I am SO sad to learn of Tom's passing. Truly, he was the best! Always cheerful, always encouraging and always a loyal friend. I hadn't checked Facebook messages in quite a while. My heart aches for you. Leigh Ann, when you and Tom got married I was so thrilled because two of the sweetest people on the face of this earth found each other. We are all blessed to have known Tom and I know The Lord welcomed him with open arms. I look forward to the day when I'll see his smiling face again. He leaves a great legacy. Thank you, Leigh Ann, for being such a dear friend in high school. May God hold you in the palm of His hand and comfort you.
My deepest sympathies to Toms' family. What a loss!
Tom always carried that wonderful smile that made anyone's day. My thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time.
My deepest sympathy to the Foster family during this difficult time of losing your loved one. He will be missed. I did not always have a chance to talk with him but each and everytime he walked by my desk... he would say HI and give his smile that you knew was sincere. I am grateful I had the chance to know him. God Bless Tom.
To the Foster Family:
I send my deepest sympathies. I'll always remember Tom's laughter through the hallways at Wickliffe High. I'm extremely thankful Tom was there in 2005 when my son had his surgery at Hillcrest Hospital. His confidence made me feel at ease. Rest in peace, Tom.
Sympathy to Leigh and your fam...may Tommy's spirit remain with us all. Paul Stefanchik Class of 73

I had the pleasure of knowing Tom for so many years, he touched my heart as well as my family's heart. He is part of the reason I am a nurse today.

The Divine Shepherd
The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside still waters;
He restores my soul.
He leads me in right paths For His Name's sake.
Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I fear no evil;
For you are with me;
Your rod and Your staff - they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies, You anoint my head with oil;
My cup overflows.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life.
And I shall dwell in the house of the Lord my whole life long.
I am so sorry for your loss. My sympathy goes out to the Foster Family. Tom was such an amazing person and loved by everyone who knew him. I am so glad I got to work with him. He brought alot of happiness and joy. I will truly miss him.

My deepest sympathy for the entire family. I had the great fortune of working with him at Hillcrest. He always had a great smile and brought laughter to all of us. God bless all of you.
when we brought a patient from the OR to critical care unit, Tom would always say "honey I'm home".I would always get a laugh.Tom was one of the nicest and friendliest people I've ever known. I will miss him!
I am so sorry for your loss. I had the privilege to know Tom for many years, first at Huron and then at Hillcrest.He was always smiling and his smile was so contagious! My thoughts and prayers are with you.

RIP Tom...and thank you for all you have done to make the world a better place.

Tom was one of my favorite classmates in Junior High, with his unrelenting sense of humor that made going to school more fun. Condolences to his good wife and family.
I will always remember Tom as a very friendly co-worker, I will miss him coming out of surgery saying "Honey I'm home" to everyone, So sorry for your loss.
I extend my deepest sympathy and condolences to the Foster family and friends. Tom and I were good friends through our high school years at Wickliffe. I remember Tom as fun-loving, a smile on his face, positive and always willing to offer a helping hand -- likely why he chose a career in the medical profession and served as a paramedic and firefighter. I am so very thankful for our friendship. His legacy certainly continues with his many friends and family.
