My dad has been Tom’s roommate at Community Northview. He was such a caring man... Tom always watched out for my dads kept him engaged in conversation and was a great friend for the short time they were roommates. I throughly enjoyed spending time with him. Many fun conversations were had.
Please know that we are thinking of all of you and sending our love and prayers to the family.
