Dear Linda and Family-I remember all the wonderful times I was able to see and have wonderful conversations with Tom. He was a true friend and fellow member of Holy Family back in the day. Always with the kind word and inspiration to me personally left me with great feelings of happiness. He will be sorely missed.
My prayers and deepest sympathies go out to your all. May Tom Rest In Peace in the arms of the Lord. Harry Rundall

Dearest Linda & David & family; Tommy was a wonderful man who saw far beyond outward appearances.
If everyone in this world had Tommy's great heart & clear Vision,our world would not be in our current predicament!
By simply BEING here,& by working tirelessly all the days of his life to serve humanity,Tommy helped to make this world a far better one.
When I think of Tommy,I think of the character of George Bailey in 'Frank Capra's 'It's a Wonderful Life!'
He made his community,his world a finer one with the sheer force of his love!
Tommy was brilliant,& saw to the heart of the matter yet chose to hold within his heart the vision of what people could be,& his faith often called forth from them that better soul that he'd spotted within!
This is what we know as "faith",& why it can work miracles.
Tommy served others with love,without expectation of reward & indeed without a shred of ego.
Because of this,he was always loved. ALWAYS.
He was the one my mother knew as father,who stepped in & provided guidance for young children whose estranged biological father was unable to give them.
He remained the one we all knew as grandfather in our hearts,& it is stories of Tommy that are told with love at Christmastime when we speak of his humor,kindness & Pied Piper gift for telling fascinating stories.
He remained a guiding force throughout Mom's life & ours.
We named our children in his honor.
We spoke of him often & always with love,frequently with laughter.
The story of Tommy & the pond ice cracking in the Springtime remains a beloved favorite (a brilliant but urban raised young man,it startled him so that 1st year at Elbow Ridge Farm!)
The laughter was gentle,for Tommy had a gift for self deprecating humor,because he WAS humble.
His humility & humor made us love him more still,for there was not a snooty bone in that great man's body!
We were always were so grateful to you,dear dear Linda, that you came to stand beside him, & gave him your love,out of which came your beautiful son & grandchildren!
You bought him joy,& loved him as he deserved to be loved after cancer shattered our lives.
Linda,you were an angel, bringing healing,& life to Tommy when he needed you most!
Because of you,& your kindness, we were able to keep a great soul here on Earth for 94 years!
Because your love sheltered him,& you cast your lot in with his,he survived tragedy & was at last given comfort,healing & a new beginning.
Thank you dear Linda,for being a wonderful wife to Tommy,& the mother of the son who gave you both joy,& grandchildren.
Through you,& your dear children, Tommy lives still, not just in spirit or memory,but in the flesh.
That brilliant mind,combined with yours,lives on to do exactly what Tommy ALWAYS did-make the world a better place!
You dear one made his life a good one,& through you he was able to continue with his sacred ministry of helping others.
Bless you for the gift of your steady, loving heart & spirit in standing beside Tommy & creating a beautiful family & legacy for him.
Through you,& through the love we all hold for Tommy,he is immortal.
I give you our love & gratitude for a debt we can never repay except to tell you we are sorry,& will sit Shivah with you & David in our hearts until such time as we are all reunited in the Light,& the grief of separation is no more.
"Unable are the loved to die,for Love is Immortality"* Emily Dickenson

My late wife Jamey and I met Tom through the RCIA program at Holy Family. He was so knowledgeable and so very kind in every way. We looked forward to seeing him every sunday at church. He was always the greatest ray of sunshine wherever he was. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

Tom was a good and holy man with a large heart and a deep sense of Christian concern for all. He visited our Living Water Community in Catonsville often, years ago, and was a welcome guest and friend every time he was with us. My heart goes out to his family who grieves his loss., and the prayers of our Living Water Community are with you all.

Thank you, dear Kincaid family, for sharing so many details of Tom's rich and fruitful life. We came to know him through his ministry as a married Catholic priest. I (Andrea) am an ordained (valid, but not licit) Roman Catholic woman priest. Tom has been totally and lovingly supportive of the ministries of our 8 RCWP's in Maryland. We owe him a great debt of gratitude for his wisdom and his generosity on our behalf. His has been a life well lived. Well done, good and faithful servant. Rest in peace in the arms of the Holy One!
