    I remember Tom in classes at the old Grand River Elementary School and going to his house for cub scouts. Your family are in my thoughts and in my prayers.

    I’ll miss you Tommy, always all smiles and full of enthusiasm for life. We had some fun times together. You were the sidekick of two of the “boys” of my life. RIP sweet friend and may your memory be eternal.

    We came up together old friend. Baseball, football, wrestling. You kicked my butt at every stop. Except for your cousin George Sinadinos, you were the toughest competitor I ever knew. God bless you and keep your girls close.
