My Uncle Tommy - I didn't get to see you often enough over the years but I will always be grateful for the time we had together especially recently with the family. I will always remember your handsome face, your smile and your great laugh! Rest in peace dear uncle.

Words cannot describe this difficult moment. We still wake up every morning hoping this is a dream, and it hurts knowing you are gone forever. I will cherish every single moment that I spent with you Uncle Tom. Rest in peace. I will miss you.

Tom, for the time that I have known you we shared our love for ravioli’s. It’s going to be tough without you being there to test them to know when they are ready to eat. We are going to do our best to live up to your “taste testing standards.” I’m sure you will be smiling down during Sunday dinner. Rest in peace.

Tom I have known you for over 40 years and worked with you for more than 30 years. I cannot express how much sadness I feel from not only a brother-in-law but also a coworker. We used to talk, laugh, play games and just hang around either at my house or yours. And of course all the house projects we built and pondered over how to fix a problem. I of all people will miss you greatly. Rest In Peace and look over us. Bobby

I hung out with Tommy a lot when he lived on Greenway. We lost touch over the years, but he was always a straight-up guy who had your back. RIP Tommy.

Yes, you were the very best brother a sister could have. You will be missed by me for so many reasons: your sense of humor, your caring ways, your tight hugs, your ‘I love you’ texts every single day and that handsome face. Roe and I will always be there for your Carol and Marisa. You left us way too soon and will be missed forever. I love you. Rest In Peace.
