Tom was such a beautiful, kind soul. I always enjoyed bumping into him in the mornings when I got my coffee. He always had a smile on his face and wonderful story to share (mostly about his loving family). It always put me in a great mood. I will miss him. My condolences and prayes to his beloved family.

Tom was an amazing colleague. I usually caught him in the elevator on the way in or at the coffee machine. He always had a funny story and to talk about his family. He often called me Katie, thought my name was Kathryn. I now understand why as he had a daughter with the same name! May he rest in eternal peace. I pray for god to give strength to his family. What an amazing kind sole gone way to soon. I will miss his smile and kind words always! May God bless his family, friends and loved ones, sending my condolences.
