    We are so sorry for your loss. I still can remember Tom walking home across the bridge and your son running to meet him halfway. It was so poignant. Indeed, a lovely memory.

    I am so sorry to hear of Tom’s passing. Although it is many, many years since I babysat for you, I have such fond memories of you all. I was always so happy to run into Tom and Gail on visits to my family and I have continued to receive updates on everyone from my father. Tom will be sorely missed by him.

    I have nothing but the fondest of memories of Tom, who I used to see and chat with most days as he returned from the office. He was a wonderful person.

    My heartfelt sympathy to Gail and the kids.
