  2. Mallory,
    I’m sorry for the loss of your dad. I always enjoyed speaking with him when I saw him at Avon Grove when I was your social studies teacher. He has a great daughter to be proud. Hugs go out to you all.

  4. I was so shocked to learn of the passing of Tom. We went through many years of school together & he was always there to light up the room & good conversation. Last I saw him was a class reunion where he spoke lovingly of his family & the love of his life. My sincere condolences to all close to him.

  9. Tom – You were, without a doubt, a once-in-a-lifetime, one-of-a-kind friend in the very best way. I’ll forever miss you, your jokes and booming laugh, celebrity impersonations, entertaining way, advice, face, friendship, words of wisdom, late night telephone calls, cooking advice and a million other things. I will always love you and never forget you, your faithful friend, Carol
