My sincere, heartfelt condolences to Tom's family. I was fortunate to have Tom as a wonderful friend since the early 70's, to spend time with him in CA and at the farm where I met his mother and sister many year's ago. We lost track when I moved to West Coast a few years ago. I just found out about the death today as this was the time every year that he sent me birthday salutations. We were friends in laughter, and sharing of events in each others life. I am deeply saddened with his...

Just discovered Tom's passing. Found an old letter he had written to me, dating 1979. I Googled 'Larkabit Farm' and found his obituary. Such a loss - I knew him during his tour of active duty. Tom was truly a Marine's Marine and wore his uniform with enormous pride. He was a great friend and confidant along with having a terrific sense of humor - he was always up for a bit of mischief or fun. He talked about his family often and I can't begin to imagine their sense of loss.

I loved Tommy's offbeat sense of humor. The first time I spoke with him was when I made a phone call to Emily and he answered, saying he was the family butler and acting pretty rude. I told Emily she had a cheeky butler, and that's when I knew I'd been had.

TR was one in a million. Devoted to Miss Emily, and a friend to all he encountered. He never knew a stranger.

Rest easy my brother, be free, you've earned it. rick

Please accept my sympathy on the loss of your son/brother/uncle. I feel a void in my life as I never had the opportunity to meet this man who was so full of zest and passion, not only did he possess a taste for life but savored it with both pride and responsiblity.

I am sorry to hear of TOm's passing. I always enjoyed working with him and talking to him. He is leaving a void that willbe slow to fill. My sincere sympathy. Margaret Fitgerald
