Dear Claire, please accept my deepest sympathy on Tom's passing. I was shocked to hear the sad news from Kenny (McManus). Tom and I went through elementary school at the Immaculate Conception Lithuanian Parish as well as the high school. Then of course, following our daughters through soccer at Arlington High. He will be remembered as a wonderful person. May your lifetime of beautiful memories help ease your sorrow.
