My heart sunk when I saw Tom's obituary. I'm so sorry for you but glad he is no longer suffering. He was such a good, caring and positive person and I know you will miss him. Please know I am thinking of you. I'm sorry I did not get to tell you this face to face but I did not see this until the day of the service. Sending you a great big hug!
