  2. I’m so sorry to hear of Tom’s passing. It is hard to know what’s happening back home now that I am in Athol. I hope he is in a better place. I’ll always remember his laugh and smile when he came to the tire shop and told stories of the kids. Take care and thanks for sharing him with us.

    I remember as a kid my father would take me to all the car shows. I would see Mr. Fitzgerald, Jonathan and Jason. He was a good guy. See you at the finish line sir. Say hello to my dad.

  6. Dear Jan…I’m very sorry for you and your family’s loss…may your husband rest in peace.

    Oh, Jan,
    I’m so sorry to hear this. I hadn’t seen Tom (still Tommy to me!) in years. I was going to stop to see him on my way from seeing my mother in Maine a few years ago, but I was running late to get to the airport so I called and cancelled. What a regret.
    Good memories of Eaton Ave (and his little green MG!)
