    Dear Norma and Family: My heart is with you all at this very sad time. Tommy and I had reconnected over the past few years, and I'm so glad we did. He had a wit and charm that I never really knew about (in my younger days.) Being double-first cousins gave us a closer connection--I will miss him. Love and Blessings to you all.

    memories. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

    You have been my dad for twenty-six years wonderful years. I shall never forget the great times we had-going to the beach in the red convertible listening to Jimmy Buffett. What a life! You and Mom finally made your dream come true and moved to the beach. Your neighbors (and now friends) in Hidden Lakes are the best anyone could ever find. Rest in peace "buddy". I love you. See you at the beach!

    Norma, Butch, Patti and family. My heartfelt sympathies comes your way via Tom's Guest Book. I remember Tom well as a fellow coach on the Pine Hills Soccer Club in Orlando. I will be forever grateful for the many years he committed to the enrichment of the boys lives, my son Bobby being one of his team members has great respect for Tom, as he was a father figure to Bobby during those years. May God be with you in this time of sorrow.

    He will (a) swallow up death forever, And the Lord God will (b) wipe away tears from all faces. Isaiah 25:8

    I will miss Tommy very much, I love him. He always played with me at the beach on boogie boards and showed me how to fish. He was a very very nice man. He wasnt ready to die, he didnt want to and I didnt want him to. I miss him already. (words spoken from an 8 yr old)

    Tommy was very special to our family. He loved playing at the beach with my son Trevor and Grandaughter Lexi(also known as Lulu to Tom). The kids will miss their beach buddy as Trevor calls him. He also has been a great friend to my mother and father, Melody and John. He had a big heart and a love for life. I am sorry it had to end so soon. He had a lot of life left in him. He will be missed.
