              Marcia & family,
              We are saddened to hear of Tom’s passing. His handling of years of health challenges, while maintaining his kindness and sense of humor, were inspiring to all who knew him. It’s wonderful he was able to experience his retirement dream.
              With sympathy,
              Denise AND J.
