    My sincere condolences on the passing of Tom. I knew Tom for many years as a customer of Phil’s and also he was my father in law’s accountant years ago. I will miss his humour and smile and his friendliness at all times. It was a pleasure knowing him.

    Dear Nick and Tom’s family,
    My feelings for Tom were always like that for a well beloved uncle and friend. I will greatly miss him. Not to hear his gentle voice again, not to see his smiling face, not to feel his warm embrace is something I’m going to miss most. Dear Tom’s suffering is over and I’m thankful that he passed peacefully.

    Very sorry for your loss. Tom was a wonderful person, enjoyed our conversations when he stopped in to help us with our books, always had lots to chat about over a cup of coffee. Very fond memories of Tom.

    There is a place that we have never seen beyond this world we know. A place we have only heard of but some day we all hope to go. It is not on any map, there are no roads to take us there, but it is a place of perfect peace, where our hearts are free from care. And though we understand some may be saddened when we leave, one day, we all will meet again…..That is what I believe…… Rest in peace Tom…..

    Our thoughts are with Nick and Tom’s family
