Dear Family Of Tom,
I just found out about Tom's passing. Please know of my thoughts and prayers for Tom, and all of you at this difficult time. While we have not seen each other in years please know what a gift Tom was to me in my life. How I loved hearing wonderful stories about his much loved family and more. He was such a blessing in countless ways. His smile was ever constant and the joy he brought to all he knew,was much needed and appreciated. His smile and presence lit up a room. He loved people in abundance, and showing love and caring of others was so important to him. He enjoyed the simple things in life, and was positive, every time, I spoke to him.
He was compassionate and this was uniquely shown by his sending special greeting cards to many, letting many know they were never forgotten. To me, Tom was a role model in how to treat others. I am blessed to have known you Tom since we were young kids and then blessed to know you when we were adults. I will miss you, and never forget you Tom. You and your family will continue to remain in my prayers. Rest in Peace Tom. I pray, that you and your Mom are having a great reunion. I am confident both of you are smiling down upon, and watching over all your loved ones. My love and prayers to all.

We have very wonderful memories of Tom when we lived at St. Bernard's Apartments. He would come to visit his dad, Gene, there and attend our potluck dinners and parties. He always had a smile on his face. After we left St. Bernard's he still kept in touch. We knew that with each birthday we would get a card from Tom, full of artwork and in an envelope with our names written in all different colors. Tom was a very, very special man.

Tom was my cousin and a loving engaging person who never ever complained and always had a smile on his face. When he met someone new the first thing he wanted to know was their birthday so he could send them a card and he sent the most beautiful loving cards that he put his love into. My thoughts and prayers go out to Gene, Maria and his entire family and know he is in heaven with his mom now. Tom was one of a kind who will never be forgotten. RIP Tommy we all love and miss you. Your cousin Paul Cataldo.

Tom was one of my favorite residents. He always stopped in to say hello, always had a smile on his face. He colored pictures and made artwork for everyone. I am so thankful to have a few of these hanging in my office. I am so thankful that I was able to know him....he is truly missed. Sending love and prayers to all of his family.
