Thank you from the bottom of our hearts

This memorial website was created in memory of Tom Lewandowski, 42, a beloved husband, father, son, and brother who passed away suddenly on May 17, 2017.

Our family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of our friends, coworkers, and neighbours for an overwhelming outpouring of support. We cannot express in words how much your loving care, comforting words, visits and practical assistance have meant to us in the days that followed Tom's death. None of us could have ever imagined the magnitude of support that we received from you all and it was in no small part thanks to your kindness and generosity that we were able to survive the initial few days of shock and grief after learning the tragic news of Tom's passing. So many individuals came out to our home personally day after day to offer their condolances and drop off meals, groceries, and flowers. Because of these visits we never felt alone and knew that our deep pain was shared. We were so touched that even people who did not know Tom or even our family personally brought us meals and condolances. You have all renewed our faith in the existence of a loving community and we view your support as a direct expression of God's love for us. You keeping us in your thoughts and prayers has helped us to endure.

We would also like to thank everyone who took time out of their busy work week to attend the memorial service that was held for Tom in the Waegwoltic Club on May 24th, 2017. To see well over one hundred people in attendance was a beautiful tribute to Tom. We thoroughly appreciated meeting all those on whom Tom had an impact and sharing memories and stories about him with you. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts.

Tom, I still think about you often, but on this day each year I cannot help but feel mixed emotions. Even though it causes a tear to my eye and a lump in my throat, I can only be thankful to have known you for the short time I did. From what I have learned from your family over the years, we had way more in common than I knew. However possible, I hope to see you again someday so we can discover even more. I want you to know how much you are missed and loved every day.

It's been 5 years but it feels like this horrible day happened just yesterday. Everytime I see your truck parked in the driveway my first split second thought is still always "Tom is home". I wish indeed that you were home. So much has changed here. But I know you are home in a better place. And one day we will meet again. Until we do, we will miss you each day.

We never have to say goodbye
Cause I can feel you from the afterlife
And I just wanna say, that every single day
You make me take a deeper look inside
If everything you say it's true
Then I would never have to call on you
In every single way
You're with me every day
So we never have to say
We never have to say goodbye
I’ll always carry you with me
In my dreams, my memories
Cause I will never find another you

Five years ago was one of the most difficult days for those who love you. We miss you every day and hope that somehow we are able to see you again. Thank you for welcoming me into the family and for making me feel like I belong. I will never forget your kindness and character. Sending love to you, the brother I never had.

People come and go in our lives, but only certain ones are special enough to form a bond that is difficult to break. From the moment Mat described you to me, I wanted to meet you, this person who obviously meant so much to him. I'm thankful every day that we were able to meet and become friends. I hope to see you again someday, Tom. You will always be part of my family and someone I am proud to call my friend.

Tom is still remembered. I worked with Tom and random things will remind me of Tom. Many mixed feelings come to mind. I remember how good it was to know him. Genuine people are not easy to find but Tom was a gem. I am thankful for specific memories. My heart grieves for his loved ones. I pray for all of you. Only the Lord Jesus can fill and heal the unspeakable hurt. My prayers and love are with you all the time.

I worked with Tom at Halifax Transit. He always had a smile on his face and a love of life. We often spoke of our children. He loved his family very much. He will be missed by all.

I met Tom the first time he relieved me at Upper Water Street at least 4 years ago. We worked together at Halifax Transit and we were doing the route 80 at that time. Theres always some time between trips so we always had about 20 mins or so to chat. I was immediately blown away by him. He was a rare gem. He was positive, kind, soft hearted and funny!! Man we laughed. And that beautiful smirk and that glorious grin of his. The grin and smile alone has touched alot of us drivers as you can see by the many references to it. After only two weeks he would either bring his red Jeep ir my car to meet me so that i would have a car to drive back to the garage. I loved driving that Jeep!! We joked about the trouble he had finding a leak in the roof or the door somewhere. He also enjoyed driving my car which was brand new at the time snd pretty souped up.  We talked about all kinds of things. Cars, the buses, crazy passengers, our families, travel, the trials and tribulations of life. And while he was very private in many ways and despite everything he himself had been through, he always had a very kind and wise word to say whenever i was troubled. He made an impression on all of us. He left his mark thats for sure. I will always carry a very special space in my heart for Tom and for his loved ones. I miss him dearly and I am so glad I got to know him.

I worked with Tom at Halifax Transit, used to take over his bus at the bridge terminal a few years back. We would talk and eventually we started joking around and after that if he would see me he would always come over and talk or honk at me if he was driving all while he had that michivieous grin on his face. I always had a good laugh when he would walk up shake his head at me and ask if I ever do any work with that grin.
He always seemed to be a very deep thinker too one time we were talking about relationships and he had told me its not whats on the oustside its whats on the inside which is so true and very refreshing to hear this day and age, made respect him all the more wish I could gotten to know him more.
RIP Tom we lost a very special soul way too soon
My deepest condolences to his family and friends

I worked with Tom at Halifax Transit. I did not know Tom very well until the last few months. Tom made himself obvious by his infectious and mischievous smile that he carried with him where ever he went. His smile made everyone he met smile too which brought happiness and a feeling of wellbeing to everyone he met. Tom had the grace to keep life simple. He knew what was important for a happy life. In getting to know him he told me about some difficulties he experienced in his younger days. It would have been easy for him to become bitter and hurt. When I asked him about this his response was "What's the point in being bitter? There is no point." I found his answer packed with wisdom that caused me to stop and ponder. Tom was a man you would be proud to call your friend. He was decent, hard working, honorable, respected and loved by everyone, honest and of solid character. He was a man you could trust. Tom loved Jesus Christ and that made him the man he was to all of us. My sincerest condolences go out to Tom's family and friends. You are in my deepest prayers for the comfort only God can give at this terrible time.

I Never got to really know Tom he graduated shortly after I did. I took ill with cancer and was taken away from my job. From what I have read and heard Tom was quite the guy whom was taken from us too soon, but believe that he is with you,I know it doesn't ease your pain but he will be watching over all of you keeping you safe. Soar with the Angels Tom and be at peace.

Tomek byl moim kochanym kuzynem z Polski. Bardzo duzo czasu razem spedzalismy przed jego wyjazdem do Canady. Jezdzlismy na rowerach, chodzilismy razem uczyc sie tanczyc, nauczyl mnie kochac Depeche Mode. Lubilismy razem wyjezdzac nad morze, sami jezdzilismy pociagiem odwiedzac rodzine w innych miastach. Tomek zawsze bedzie dla mnie bardzo bliski, zawsze duzo o nim myslalam co porabia w tym dla mnie obcym kraju. Nigdy Cie Tomek nie zapomne i zawsze bedziesz mi bliski.

I will remember Tom for the love and care he had for his family. He had strong principles and a great heart. I have many good memories of him and his great sense of humour, which often seemed to be accomplished with a straight face for extra effect. I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts are with you all at this very sad time.
