Tom was the most genuine person I will ever meet. Smart, witty, and humble. I looked up to him even as we grew older and somewhat apart, as we started our life journey's on different paths, but yet still managed to keep in touch once a year. Tom helped me so much in his sage and truthful advice. He played such a key part of my life, as he touched all of us in an honest way we could only hope for. He was a great friend, brother, son, uncle....you name it, he did it well. Never afraid of what people would think, he got up on those stages of life and sang like there was no tomorrow, where everyone got to enjoy his gift of music. I loved this man like I loved none other. He will always have a special place in my heart. Huge prayers to his family and friends who will have Tom's loving memories in their hearts and souls. Sing on, brother. I love you.
