So sorry to hear of the passing of Tom, he was a good friend and worked for us for a time when he lived at Clare. Always had a good conversation with him. He will be missed.

I remember Tom working for my father, Dean, at his farm by Clare when I was a child. He was always so kind and did such a great job helping out. My prayers to the family, Tom was a great man.
