I wish to express my deepest sympathy for Tom's family. I grew up on the same street in Kimberly and I remember him well. He was always nice to me and always encouraged me to achieve my goals. The Burns family will always be special to me. Mike and I had a special bond, and Tom was a significant part of that.

My deepest and sincerest sympathies go to Brian and his family during this difficult time. I've been a close friend to Brian for many years now and he often told stories and anecdotes of his father and the adventures (or misadventures) they often got up to. Thomas seemed to be a good man and a caring father to Brian. May Thomas rest in peace.

I spent many nights at the Cavern Coffee House, listening to Tom perform. Through him, I developed a love of folk music. Though we lost touch many years ago, I have always remembered him as a friend and a musician. Tom will now have a chance to meet up with Woody Guthrie. Rest in peace, my old friend.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

My sincere condolences to Molly, Brian, Uncle Bob, my cousins-Honore, Katie, Maggie,(and your families), and to Joanne. I cannot tell you how much Tom meant to me, nor how grateful I am for having so much more time with my favorite cousin than I ever dreamed we'd have when we were children. I truly wish we had many more years. I remember his singing, his smile, his humor, his hugs, his unhesitating ability to ask me to pray, and his knowledge that I would. Tom, no more pain! No more limited activity! I'll miss you, but now, dear cousin... you please pray for us. I will miss you, for in many ways, you were a big brother I never had. May you rest in peace. (And if you run into Ven Solanus Casey, give him a hug for me, please).

Dear Joanne, As your continuing friend and former colleague in Green Bay, I am very sad to learn of Tom's death. I well remember hearing you speak of the affection he had for his guitar and music. I recall meeting your children in Green Bay when they visited there. I know they will miss their dad and now, grandpa. I offer my condolences to you all, and will pray for continued strength and renewed peace for your loss. Blessings... Carolyn

I'm saddened to hear about Tom's passing. I didn't know him very well as he was one of the oldest cousins and I was toward the bottom end, but I do remember him and the others singing. It was always fun to hear them because they were so good. Peace to all of you. MaryBeth Lipp Art and Betty's daughter.
