Tommy, I was so blessed to have you in my life as my friend and brother-in-law. I have so many wonderful memories of you and will cherish them forever. My children are so blessed to have had an uncle like you. You have been such a strong positive force in their life and I can't thank you enough for that. I miss you so much but know you are at peace. You were loved by so many. When people think of you they will remember the amazing, funny, selfless, giving man you were. Love you!
