  • Richard Peterson  - Forever in memory
    I am very sorry. I will always be proud and honored to call Tommy my friend. He was a great guy. I will miss him.
  • Robert Morrissette
    Dear Patty and family, I'm so sorry to hear of Tom's death. My prayers are with you in these difficult days.
  • John and Amy Tippett  - Father of the Bride
    We were only fortunate enough to have met Mr. Hebert once and that was during Melissa's wedding weekend. The joy he had in watching his beautiful daughter on her wedding day was palpable. Usually fathers-of-the-bride look exhausted and stressed. But not Mr. Hebert. He was smiling from ear-to-ear, laughing with Melissa and Dorian, and enjoying time with his family and friends. Pretty much every time I asked Melissa who someone was she would say "that's my uncle, but he's not really my uncle" or "those are his siblings." These were lifelong friendships which are the very best kind, right? Our hearts are heavy for the Hebert family and friends who are mourning this profound loss. “Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal"
  • Martha Donohoe  - “Hebie”
