Norma, so sorry for your loss. I only saw the notice in the paper today. Steve is out of town, back the weekend, and we will make it a point to see you soon. Tom was a fine man, always with a smile and a story. I’m sure that the Air Canada crowd will miss him. We are thinking of you at this time.

Norma,

My deepest condolences on Tom’s passing. He was such a nice man, and I have so many lasting memories of all the Boxing Day visits to your house during my childhood. I shall also remember all the favors he did me on seating arrangements as I was travelling from St. John’s on Air Canada. Take care. 😉

I extend my deepest condolences to Norma and family on Tom’s passing. We were classmates at PWC and I believe his desk was directly in front of mine in grade 11. We were friends and always shared a laugh.

Norma ,

So sorry to hear of Tom’s passing . While too many years have gone by since I left the Province I often thought of you and Tom and such a good relationship you had . He was one of a kind : gentle, intuitive and quite often would up-grade me on A.C. , especially on my European junkets….he was one of a kind ! That aside , my sincerest best wishes go out to you and may the wonderful memories carry you through these difficult moments. Bob Hefferton, High River , AB
