Barb:  We worked together at the Newark Medical Center. I remember going to the "Farm" dancing on a Saturday night and you met Tom. On Monday, your face lit up as you talked about the boy you met and how wonderful he was.  You two were soul mates from the start.  So sorry to hear of his passing and pray that fond memories will help you through this terrible time.



We always thought of Tom as a gentleman and also great fun. He was a fair and honest hard working man. This will be a great loss to his family and we send our love and sympathies. Mickey and Ed


I remember sharing the red bicycle with my brother, Tommy. The others, Kathy, Carole and Johnny had their own. It was not a problem.
