Not sure what to say?

I never had the pleasure of meeting Thomas. I do feel as though I knew him. My cousins Ritann and Larry just adored him. We wish the entire family strength.
Audrey and Neil

Uncle Tom you will be deeply missed. The times we shared together are unforgetable. In loving memory of a wonderful person. We will love you and miss you always.

The world is a better place since Uncle Tom was in it. I am one of the lucky ones from Outdoor Resorts in Long Key, Fl that got to spend time with this gentle soul. May he RIP. Till we bask in the sunlight together old friend.. shine your light down on us all!! May Tom's family find comfort knowing he touched so many lives in a positive way.

I am so sorry for your loss. My prayers are with you.

John, Rita, I am so very sorry to hear of your Dad's passing! You and your families are in my thoughts and prayers.

Tom McLaughlin was a fine Irish lad and his passing makes us all very sad. If only we had him for a little more while to enjoy that leprechaun smile. To all in his life both young and old he shared with them his pot of gold. Erin Go Braugh our friend until we meet again.

I was so sorry to hear the news of Tom's passing. I first met Tom while working at our family business -- Joe Hand Promotions. My father started the business in the basement of our house in Northeast Philadelphia. Everyday after school, I would burst through the front door and run down the basement steps to see Tom and Aunt Pat Hand hard at work. Tom easily became like one of our family and was part of the team that helped lay the foundation of our sucessful company. He always be remembered...
