Dearest Family/Friends:  Tom has been one of the most friendly persons
I have ever known.  Always kind and upbeat.  A bus driver during my
years at Boston Junior High School as Principal I could always count on
Tom offering humor, sage advice or just plain common sense.  Tom will
be missed.  I respect and admire all Tom stood for!   Dr. Joseph A. Pezzullo
