Dear Mallory and Rick
I send my deepest sympathy to you ,Wells and Carolyn.
I was so enjoying Thad's posts on Weekapaug for the last several years. He was a master with his camera and continued to keep my Weekapaug memories glowing within me even though I lived miles away.
My thought and prayers are with each of you at this difficult time.

We are heart-broken to hear about Thad -- who has left us much too soon. We will always cherish our time together in Weekapaug. There was nothing better than seeing Thad's smile, receiving his bear hug, and catching up on the latest news with him. Such a gifted artist and a genuine friend to all. We send our deepest sympathy to the Constantine family.

I have fond memories of a young Thad sitting in my 6th, 7th and 8th grade Science class at ST. John's Episcopal School. He reached out to me last year to congratulate me on my retirement. Sending love and thoughts to the Constantine family.

I'm so sorry to hear about Thad. His Facebook posts always brought back such wonderful memories of our golden childhood in Weekapaug. My condolences to the whole Constantine family.

I was a fraternity brother of Thad's at Richmond. A couple of years behind him, but I got to know him quite well and kept in touch sporadically through the years, just recently connecting with him on Instagram. If I could only say one thing about Thad, it is that he is one of the most generous people I have ever known. He was always willing to drop everything and go out of his way to help someone in need or simply to hang out.
The world is worse off without Thad, but better off for him being with us for a short time.
My deepest condolences to his family and loved ones.

I have had the extreme privilege of knowing
Thad through our mutual love of ships and the comments we exchanged via facebook - may the winds of the seas take you to new shores and calm seas - you are a legacy to all ship lovers - and the models you shared with our ship fraternity - Rest well - Bryan

To Constantine Family,

Words can't express how sorry I am to hear about the passing of Thad. Having grown up in Weekapaug with your family, it was always so nice to see Thad every summer. He was the most kind and fun loving person, who always had a positive and upbeat attitude. He will truly be missed.

Thad was one of the longest online friends I ever had, He was a great source of knowledge and you could always ask him anything, he would have the answer for sure. He will be dearly missed in the ocean liner community online! Rest in peace friend! Courage to his family in this sad time.
