    We recently became friends with Tom after our family member (Ann) became ill and who passed away on February 17. She lived in the same apartment complex as Tom. Ann was wheel-chair bound and Tom was helpful to her during her stay there. He helped with things that were needed around the apartment and was especially kind to her. In addition, after she passed away, Tom was very helpful to us as well. He provided us the use of different equipment that we could use to help make the move easier. He was very familiar with the apartment complex and had a great understanding of what was needed. Thanks, Tom. Rest In Peace. You will be missed.
