Not sure what to say?

I met Tommy through my brother-in-law and always felt like he was a good man with his moral compass always pointed in the right direction. When my brother-in-law was in the cruel grips of ALS, Tommy offered to move in to help my sister care for his good friend. He did continue to visit regularly even though his friend could no longer speak. That is a true friend who remembered what once was and wanted to hold on to it.

RIP dear Tommy. Warm memories of you will be with my sister...

My wife and I met Tom several years ago. We found him to be a very wonderful guy always upbeat even though he had many medical issues he approach them as though they were minor. He was a great talker and a philosopher. He surely will be missed.
