  • Thoughts and prayers to the family. Tom was a good man. He was a hard worker and got the job done. He was a good neighbor that will always be remembered.. Wish we new what time Tom”s viewing was, we would of been there.

  • I still can’t come to terms. In the brief time we knew each other, you instantly became like my brother. I’m still speechless. My brother, I truly hope there’s something afterwards so I can see you then.
    I’m sorry for your loss Brandy. Tom spoke of you the entire time as well as Alyssa. All he ever wanted was to get home to you guys and marry you. You gave him what no other woman could. You and Alyssa were his motivators to put forth an honest effort to get his act together. He loved you two more than anything else in this world.
    My condolences.
