Mary,.. our sympathy on the loss of your brother Tom.  I hope it will comfort you to know that a whole community is sharing your loss. Such a great man.. a kind and caring man. A man who always took the time to talk to you and was genuinely interested.. a man who beamed when he spoke of his family.. and his adventures with you. Hang on to those memories.. hard to believe he's not going to be around.. he was such a familiar face at any community event.  Look after yourself in the days ahead.. sorry we can't be there to pay our respects in person but know we are thinking of you

Our deepest sympathy Mary. Tom’s spirit will never die. He was a quiet, gentle man...always dedicated, sincere, loyal and kind. He was such a hard worker! He took great pride in his community and expressed sincere interest in everyone he met along the way. Above all, he loved his family and cherished his relationship with you. We were privileged to visit with both of you last week and pray you will find peace in the tough journey ahead as you cherish your memories of special times. Rest easy Tom...so proud of you.

My deepest condolences to Tom’s family & friends. I met Tom many years ago when Hanover Travel had a satellite office in Kincardine. He loved to travel & booked many trips through our office...I remember one trip that he booked out west & he bought a lottery ticket & won! He brought me a lovely coffee mug from one of his trips, which is my favourite to this day...may you Rest In Peace, Tom. ♥️
