Tom will be missed dearly. Since we met he became my closest friend in the area and someone I could always talk to. We had a lot in common and could share literally anything that we needed to with each other. Tom had a unique way of seeing things. He always told me, whenever I was struggling with something, “It is what it is”. I’ll miss our conversations about life with him in the tree swing and me sitting at the vase of the maple in the yard. Rest in peace my friend. Deb, be sure we are here for you.

Tom was one of my very best and closest boyhood friends. His Mom and Dad were heart of the earth people and close too with my parents. Mr. Tremblay (Edgar) instructed Scout merit badges and Sally, Tom and Jane’s Mom often drove my mother to her chemo appointments when needed. Real small town friendships. A truly wonderful family. We went to grade school together, enjoyed Boy Scouts and summer camps, and skiing at Mad River. As happens in life, our adult paths headed in different directions. But when, on occasion, we would meet at local markets, he always had that wonderful friendly smile and we would get caught up as if we were still waiting for the next merit badge meeting or next chair-lift ride. Paths diverge but, I suspect, so will they meet again.
