This past Saturday I was thinking about Tom and how he may be now. An then today to get this email from ICHS. Tommy was a Great Guy. He and Lorraine helped me become an East Orange Fireman. I have Always thought of him. May he Rest In Peace. So many memories of his daughter Linda and I in our senior year at ICHS, so many fun memories made at the Monaghan home in East Orange. What a beautiful and loving family they were. I’m am sure they all are hurting , as Tommy was always a great husband and father. I pray That God comforts you all with Tom’s passing. Rest Tommy, for you were the perfect example of a Great Husband, Great Father, and a Man among Men. I will Always remember your warm heart and the great family you raised and cherished. Rest among the Angels. My heart will always be touched by your loving memory.
