For all who knew Tom, they knew a man with a gentle, warm, peaceful, kind, loving and playful spirit- a giving man with a tender and faithful heart. He loved to travel, spend afternoons with a great book and he became an expert Lego builder. Tom was an animal lover – and his heart was warmed by wagging tails, soothing purrs, singing birds and ambling deer. Every neighborhood dog found their way to Tom’s home, as they knew he would have biscuits waiting for them. He holds such a special place in our hearts and he will be missed by all.
