I spent 4-5 years working with Tom through RCIL. Highlighting the numerous tasks we undertook were two that made a lasting impression: he looked forward each spring when we would dress his family graves at the cemetery; and weekly, when he would be sure to visit his sister. God bless him for all I learned from him.

I worked at the bakery with Tom. He and I would eat slivers from the pizzas. I used to see him out too. Tom was a sweetheart and good cousin.

The thing I'll remember most about Tommy was his great sense of humor and infectious laugh -- no doubt learned from his father after years of working in the bakery. I will miss Tom and his strong spirit.
