Condolence & Memory Journal

Dear Doris, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I only had the pleasure of meeting your dear husband Tom once, but through the years hearing about him through you, and talking to him when he answered the phone when I needed to call you about an appointment. Well it was easy to figure out how special he was. I am so sorry for your loss.

May God bless the family of Tom in the time of sorrow . My thoughts and prayers are with Dpris and her family. Tom was a classmate and friend at Emerson H.S. We had a great time with Tom and Doris at our 50th anniversary of graduating from Emerson in 1999. He was a email pal for many years.
May your memories bring you comfort.

Thinking of your family during this difficult time, and remembering how my dad (George Bianchini) and mom have always valued their friendship and many travel adventures with Tom and Doris. Such enduring friendships are rare indeed.
