    Thomas is my cousin I will never forget the time that my Auntie Dee and Thomas drove all the way to Utica, New York in the dead of the cold winter because I had just had my twins. They came to check on me. I felt a relief because none of my Mom's side of the family had been able to come down for my birth. Family looks out for family! Nothing like family Rest Easy Cousin Thomas! No more pain and suffering. My condolences to Pam and the boys their two sons. Pam please reach out to me anytime! God Bless!!

    My sincerest condolences to Pam, Thomas Jr, and Michael. In the short time I knew him I could see that Thomas was a kind and considerate man who cherished his family and friends; was always looking out for others; and had a great sense of humor, too. Although he will be missed by his family and friends, angels are rejoicing in heaven as they welcome him to his eternal home.
