    I was driving home today and there you were as clear as day. Your loving and caring bright blue eyes staring at me. Many many memories of you through out the years came flashing in my head. Not one wasn’t making me smile, your kindness and positive warmth that generated off of you all the time made you so special. Thank you Tom for always making me feel like I was your sister and your friend . I am missing you!

  2. I miss my brother everyday, and I loved him very much. I just want to talk with him one more time. He was a great brother, and a dear friend. I have been able to find some comfort knowing that he is out of pain and at peace, and he gets to see our mom and dad again. If there’s fishing in heaven, I’m sure he and dad have a line in the water. We all got to spend some time with Tom the days before he passed, as his birthday was the Friday prior to his passing. Through it all he stayed positive (for all of us), even though I’m sure he knew his time was short. His siblings, extended family and friends have all been so loving, supportive and amazing. Tom would be so proud of all the kind words people have said here, and relayed to me personally, regarding Tom. Tom blazed his own path and live his life his way. He will be missed, but never forgotten. Until we meet again my brother….I’ll miss ya bud.
