Not sure what to say?

Candy: I still can see the smile on Tommy's face and you and Frank standing by the register when I would come into the store, most daily, However time never heals the loss and missing of our friend and loved ones. Prayers for you and Tom on this anniversary. Bud Kennett

To Tommy Heffernan's family
I will try to make the funeral home at 8:30. Josephine is at Whitney Manor and has dementia! I know that she would have come to see you but she doesn't remember much!
My father loved his best buddy Tommy! He always had a good story about him and Tommy when they were growing up! They liked to schooch each other and Cosmo always had fun kidding him about being part Irish!
I send you heartfelt condolences and prayers
Love Ann Perrelli...

Her name was Tiger, and one day I was calling her, and Tom, who happened to be outside working with his plants, quipped, "Yes, what...
