    Jim, Ginny and the extended family. Our condolences go out to you all. May the happy thoughts of times past, and shared together, overtake the sadness you feel right now. Tom touched many people in his time here among us, and will be remembered by all.

  9. Dear Paradise Family,

    I meet Tommy through his job at Market District, the company I work for was one of his steady customers, Cosmax USA.
    We relied on Tommy’s expertise and professionalism to always take good care of our needs. and through that we develop a friendly acquaintance, he will be missed.
    God Bless and keep you

  10. Tommy J brought love and laughter to my family. From peach cobbler to playing cards on weekends he spent so much time bringing my family together. He liked to laugh and we laughed a thousand times. All of our holidays particularly Thanksgivings were huge and filled with food fit for kings. He spent mornings drinking coffee with my Mom…she adored him and tried to keep up with my Pops drinking Burger beer…he loved him too.
    I am forever grateful for those times and pray he is playing his best round of golf in heaven with his Mom and Dad singing “New York New York”….God be with you always!

  11. Jim,

    My condolences to you and your family on the passing of your brother. I know that his memory will be a comfort to you in the days and years ahead.
