    Justine, Zach and Will,

    I would like to extend my most heartfelt condolences. I have fond memories of Tom. It was like yesterday, I remember Zach and James playing soccer together as children while we all watched on the sidelines rain or shine, cheering our kids down the field, sharing stories from time to time and much laughter. Please know that you are in our prayers.
