  1. Tom and Mary Jones were great friends of my parents, Joan and Charlie Terranova, they had shared many happy times at my parents house. Tom and my Dad both worked at Nestles together and after they retired, they both wintered in Florida and enjoyed each others company down there. Now, the four of them are together again. I am sorry for your loss. He was a great man and I remember him as having a wonderful smile.
