So sorry to hear about Tom. I read the obituary in the online Waterbury Republican. We moved to Beaufort in January. When did you move south? I would love to get together when you are up to it. Both Mike and I were flooded with good memories when we thought of you and Tom. If you would like to get together my email is email@example.com. Love, Brenda Murphy

Praying for the family of Tom. I had the honor of serving with him as a member of the WFD. Tommy was a good firefighter and friend. Always good conversation and laughter when in his company. RIP Brother.
