Tom will be remembered for his kindness, generosity, intelligence and ready wit - a true gentleman! Tom was loved by many and he will be greatly missed. His family is deeply grateful for the compassionate and loving care he received at Emerald Crest in Burnsville during his last years.

Linda, Ann, and Family,

While attending a retreat this past weekend at the Demontreville Retreat Center, I learned of Thomas' death when reviewing the listing of the recently deceased who have attended retreats there. It was a blessing to me to be able to offer prayers for you and for him while on retreat ; be assured that the other retreatants will remember and pray for the rest of his soul in the weeks and months to come.

Many blessings on the Blessings.

Please accept my sympathies upon the death of your husband and father. I doubt that you will remember me, but I certainly remember Tom with fond memories. I came to know Tom while working at Holy Angels. His efforts at the school were very impactful. Yet we are told that our greatest influence is on people, such as me, and in particular on our children. There is no greater legacy than helping to raise and guide one's children to become good and caring people. I only knew Katie, Linda, and Ann. They were wonderful examples of what a parent hopes and prays for in their children. A special hug for you, Trish, and "the little girls". I have been very blessed having known the Blessings. You are in my prayers.
