    Fran, I remember back when Eddie first introduced me to his "new gal"...he was so smitten with you. You both were such the cute couple and the love you shared was a blessing. You will forever have your special angel and he will rest peacefully without pain for eternity. Gather your family & friends for support.

    Gorgeous Borges! Eddie always gave the best hugs, and whenever he came to church, he was happy to be there and loved by all of us. We sure will miss him! The Rev'd Sarah Brockmann Trinity Church, Rockland

    It is with a heavy heart yet fond memories of uncle Tommy as my siblings and I always referred to him even knowing that he was an elder cousin and loving son of my mothers dear sister Aunt Bea. My fondest memories of Uncle Tommy was his wisdom and guidance whenever you spoke to him. It may not have been what you wanted to hear but he was going to make you listen. I will also forever be in awe to him for the love and kindness that he showed to my mother. Showing up unannounced at our home just to give my Mom a hug. Her spirit was always touched. My final tribute to Uncle Tommy was his unapologetic and unwavering love our lord Jesus. May he rest in the arms of those who went before him and bask in the glory of our savior for eternity.
