Mary, I was saddened when I read Tom's obituary in the Star Ledger. He was a special individual and it was unfortunate that we were not able to remain close. We would occasionally run into each other at Plainfield CC.It was always good to see his smiling face and experience his positive attitude. Please accept my deepest condolences on his passing.
