My condolences to Tom's family. Tom was always polite, kind and professional. He grew up with my brother Frank and always was welcomed at our home on Maryland Ave. Tom was the best plasterer and did lots of extensive work at my home on Beech restoring the walls to their original beauty. The Lord has hired the best plasterer for restoring heaven! May Tom rest in peace.

Tim and I attended St Edmonds Academy long ago, but the boyhood friendship we built, while not an active one today, was such that I felt compelled to attend your father's service. While work commitments made that impossible, I wanted to share my condolences. May God grant you all strength during this difficult time. John Shields
