Uncle Tommy, what can I say, my heart is broken, we are definitely going to have a huge void in our life with you not in it. The one thing that brings me comfort is knowing that you’re with your love Debbie, and the two of you can spend eternity together now. You’ll be greatly missed when it comes time for our Christmas Eve dinners that you made so special every year. You and Deb brought Cape Cod to Bob and I and we got to see things through your eyes when we went to all of the places that You loved so much. When we go this year I’m going to have a Manhattan at Clancy‘s just like you used to do. Godspeed my friend I will always cherish the memories that we all shared together and we will keep your memory alive.

Hey Bud,
My clock radio woke me up Monday morning with an obscure song by the Fixx, one of your faves. I know that was you telling me you've reached your destination. You've made it "Home", as you used to say. Enjoy your well-deserved rest. I'll think of you daily until we see each other again. Save me a spot. And keep an eye on Grace, as always. She has yet one more guardian angel.
