In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions will be accepted in Tom’s name to the Alzheimer’s Society of BC at www.alzheimer.ca/en/bc or to heartandstroke.ca or to Hospice at interiorhealth.ca.
To Tom, a husband, a dad, a brother, a grandfather, a friend, an uncle we say…
those we love don’t go away,
they walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard but
always near, so loved, so missed, so very dear.
