My Dad and I , Christmas in Hawaii, 2012
Thank you very much to whomever created this tribute page.
My fathers funeral was an honorable tribute and farewell orchestrated by his brothers from Fire Department of New York City. It was beautiful and breath taking. It was standing room only, and hundreds of firemen there. during the communion service the smoke detectors started beeping and the church allowed it to beep through the communion ceremony. It had to be my dad, his last message to his brothers to always be aware, and it broke the tension of sadness, and truly became a celebration into heaven. Aloha

I was so sorry to hear of Tom's death. My Husband Tom and I were able to meet Tom through Larry when he first came up here. He loved building his home in the woods . It was a true opus for him. Always a pleasure when I ran into him.i am sorry for your loss. Another good man gone. If any peace can be found,it is that Tom and Larry's spirits are together again. My prayers that you all may find peace.
