" Tom will always be in our hearts forever. He was a life-long friend and you could always count on him if you needed him for anything. He surely resides now with the Angels. "

"Your infectious smile, charming personality and loving nature will be greatly missed. I will always cherish the moments of unconditional love, laughter and patience you showered your grandchildren with. A better grandfather does not exist. Thank you for understanding me when I needed it the most. Until we meet again, I miss you and I love you. ?"
