    Dear Terri, Deb & Jim, Our condolences to you and all the family. As I write, I can’t believe it’s 3 of you now. We love you dearly be it near or far. Tommy’s pain and suffering is over. He is at peace. I’m sure he left this world knowing how much he was loved by his family. I’m am grateful I had the opportunity to spend time with him at Deb and Bill’s in Jacksonsville. Quiet and content surrounded by those he loved. And yet often surprising everyone with his quick dry wit, interesting facts, particularly on music, guitars and things he enjoyed. One of the last times I saw Tommy I gave him a copy of a picture from the Lowell Sun of him, 50+ yrs ago. He looked, “hey, that’s me, where’d you find this? “Your Grandmother O’Connell saved it in box.” “She did? Wow, thx.” Smiling, he hugged me and took off showing the picture to everyone. When I remember your brother, and our nephew, a cousin, with many memories, I’ll never forget him holding that picture, his excitement in showing it to others and smiling. RIP. Our heartfelt sympathy and love, Uncle Billy, Uncle Frank, & Cousin Billy
