"My sincerest condolences to you and your family Mary Anne. My Dad lives next door to you and I have had the opportunity to talk with Tom on many occasions while out in the yard or on the driveway working on a car. He always had a smile on his face and we always had a laugh. My Dad always spoke very highly of both of you. Prayers to you and your family during this very difficult time...John Kowalski Elgin, IL"
