Mrs. Byrne, Emmett, John, and Mike-
I want to express my deepest sympathy on Tom's passing. I will always be grateful for my many chats on business, politics and history with Tom. While most may have found him opinionated, his true gift was his ability to listen and engage in a healthy debate. We all lost a good man.
God bless,

Mrs.Byrne,Emmett and family,
I was saddened to hear about Tommy's passing. He was a good person who will be greatly missed by all who knew him. I am sorry I will be unable to attend his celebration of life services but you and your family will be in my thoughts in your time of sorrow.
