    Dora, I a saddened to hear of Tom passing. But remember the wonderful years that you have enjoyed and know that he is always watching over us. Tom has helped so many people that he has earned his wings. He has counseled many here at Green Hills CAA when he was with Preferred Family. Call us if you ever need a laugh to remember all the fun he was full of.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to Tom’s family. I worked with Tom at Preferred Health and again when I worked at GHCAA in Hamilton where he had an office. Tom was a great co-worker and friend. Dora he praised you often and respected and loved you greatly.
