  1. Terry, Patrick and Kathleen,
    I am so sorry for the loss of your husband and father. He was a great and wonderful man. I really cared for him. He taught me much. He was my supervisor at Fitz. I am glad that he came into my life. He is an inspiration. My prayers are with your family. RIP Tom.
