    I tried earlier to leave a message but I don’t think it went through, so I will try again.
    My deepest sympathy to Tom O’Grady and Tom Marshall’s family over Tommy’s death. Tommy was my friend for over twenty years and my late husband Bob and I truly valued his friendship. Each year we would have a Holiday Party and we couldn’t wait to see what wonderful baked goods Tommy would bring. What a baker and cook he was. I will always cherish the memories of the years we were camping with Tommy. So many wonderful barbecues and camp fires. I will truly miss Tommy and I’m so glad to have known him and been friends.

    Sincerely Ken Stillson
