I am very saddened at the passing of this dear sweet man that I loved so very much. I met him and his beautiful wife Pat when Tommy was a patient of Dr. William Stuart, my employer. What a terrific man Tommy was, never once in the years that I knew him did I ever ever hear him complain of this dreaded disease MS. Never once did he ever complain, in fact he always had a smile and a kind word for every challenge he faced. I have so many happy memories of my time with him and Pat. I adopted Tommy as the father I never had, I love you so much Tommy and I will miss you terribly Always in my heart.
