Julie, I am lacking words to soothe you. Thank you for posting pictures! What a wonderful guy, what wonderful memories! Love sent.
With regrets I was not able to attend Tom's celebration of life. When I was looking through the photos and saw the one with him and Dennis Chaleen,it made me smile. Both have left an imprint on this community with their unique style of doing their life's work and the humor that made any situation bearable. He got me through a few hard times. What stands out the most to me was the love he had for his family, I remember once he told me there were only four people he really cared about in his life, I didn't need to ask who he meant. May the days ahead be comforted with the memories you share with others. Best to you all.
Julie and the boys. I'm so sorry I cannot make today's celebration of life. Would so love to be there. Just know my thoughts and prayers are with you now and always. God bless.
I just saw it on the video of Tom. Left me with a sadness in my heart. I just I'm always said, always leave them laughing

Tom was one of a kind, humorous, actually the best at dry humor. He could make me laugh at any point and always as kind as could be. When I owned Sidetrack he would come over every morning for his breakfast, he always made my day!! Prayers for his family, saying I am sorry will never fill the part of the heart and loss his family will feel always. Rest in Peace.
My very very good friend Tom. No one could make me laugh like you. And we had some great laughs together. Just a note to say you will be missed terribly. You will be my forever friend. Say hi to God for me. Tell him I'm really not that bad of a guy
Julie, I am so sorry to hear about your dad. May the memories you keep close to your heart bring you some comfort in days to come. Take Care.
All I can say is Tom, You goof!! We were close friends for a lot of years and I'm going to miss you attitude, I Loved It!!
Awwwwww I am so sorry to hear this! He was such a caring nice guy! So sorry for your loss Julie! Thoughts and prayers
Tom has been our Dear, dear friend some 40 years. My hubby knew Tom long before; but the night I met Tom is forever branded in my memory. From 7pm until 2 am was constant laughing...I still have the laugh lines in my face! We have SOOO many memories and joy-filled times together. Tom shared his wisdom when we had our "Save the World" sessions at our home's bar and at his Bar! Tom left a deep footprint in our hearts and memories and the hole in our hearts will forever be there. RIP Dear Friend.. we'll love you forever. Mary & Mer
