    Tom was a great man and will be missed… He always had a kind word and corny joke for me no matter how he was feeling and would often go out of his way to put a smile on my face every time I saw him. My thoughts and prayers are with you all….I know what a wonderful husband, father, grandfather and friend was lost with his passing.
    With love,
    Jennifer Roberts
