  2. Dear Melanie & Family
    Just a note to let you know how sorry I was to hear about Tom’s passing. He was such a good guy who adored you & Onilea. I am certain that he would have been cherished by his grand kids and great grand daughter. I also had great respect for your father. Without a formal education, he worked so hard, was good at what he did and provided a good life for his family. He was a generous & caring man who always treated me with kindness.
    I know that he loved you dearly and you thought the world of him. I just wanted you to know that I’m in your corner and thinking about you during this very tough time.
