We fondly remember Tom taking us "tourists" sightseeing in his boat at Fleur de Lys. It was a treasured experience for our first time in Newfoundland. We were so pleased to have met you both and thank you for your hospitality. May the lord be with you during this difficult time.

It was an honor to have known such an amazing man. He may of been my worstest uncle, but he was also the best Uncle.
He will be missed but never forgotten.
May God give you the comfort and peace that you seek and may his soul rest in peace.
