  • Are We Immortal Or Eternal?

    Immortality implies that we keep
    On living although we die;
    While the word “eternal” may be defined
    As before we were born we had a Mind.

    Death is a process that Spirit goes through,
    One chapter in volumes of books;
    In spite of how Man may see himself
    He is never the way he looks.

    Prior to stories of angels and ghosts
    We were “here” and then “there” all the time;
    All the illusion and mental confusion
    Are tricks Humans play on their Mind.

    If I think of myself or my Life as a void
    It may very well prove to be true;
    To decide I am lonely, sad, empty or broken
    Is defining small scenes as grand views.

    Everyone tends to get side-tracked by thinking
    That being alive is a chore;
    When I stop for ten seconds to look for my purpose
    I find Life can have meaning and more.

    Love, support and compassion for stranger or friend
    becomes instant Self gratification;
    I am grateful and changed as the Cosmos unwraps
    The gift of eternal Creation.

    Before you were born you were well on your way,
    Spirit preceded arrival;
    When you leave I will see you again in True Form
    For the Soul is designed for survival.

  • No finer Man could one meet. He gave more than he was given, and was a Grateful, and Courageous Man. You fought hard for the extra time with Us, and to remain ” The best Pop Pop, Husband, Father, and Friend”. Wear those wings Proud, until we see You again…..

  • I will miss the calmness of your peace and the wisdom of your words. Thank you for your loving kindness without judgement and look forward to greeting you again. With love, prayers and my deepest condolences for your family, Patti

  • Thomas was an AWESOME soul and the most humblest human I know. He was the epitome of AA. I totally admired and looked up to him. He was so loving, honest and real. I am so grateful that our paths crossed in this lifetime. He will be missed immensely! I love you Thomas K. Wolf!

  • Thank you Tom, for your service to myself and to others
    You were truly generous with your time for others in need of your help

  • I am blessed to have known such a beautiful man. I will carry his message of love and hope for others just as he did for me.♡

  • May you rest in peace Tom. You will be missed by many.

  • Tom was a legend, and when I finally met him he lived up to it in every way. He had a calm peace, and he had an innate ability to cut through the crap and get to the meat of a matter. I will miss all of that – and his kindness and quick smile. To Linda and the girls – surround yourselves with the love that the many feel for him – because it is certainly out there, and it is his legacy and it will be there for a long, long time.

  • My deepest condolences to the family. Thank you for your service, Tom. Always greeted me with a smile. Bless his memories.

  • I remember my first day at triad and an AA meeting at that. He greeted me with open arms with that presence he exuded of no judgement and honesty. He also gave me an AA sister’s of sobriety coin. You will be missed but your memory and impact you made to so many will live on forever!

  • Going to miss my buddy. From the day we met, we bonded as two New Castle guys. I’ll miss his kindness, smile and the laughter that we shared. Especially his greeting every time we met, “Daniel my brother…”. So glad that our paths crossed and I’ll see you on the other side buddy.
