John Thomas’s family: I'm so sorry for your loss. I went through a similar situation and I was very helped by the hope that I found in the Bible in John 5:28, which says, "Do not amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". I am sending you a link with more information on this hope.
I am an old friend of your mom.. We went to same grammar school, got married the same day and when Thomas was born I had a son and we would walk them in their carriage since we lived near by. Your dad was such a great guy and I am so sorry for your loss., please let your mom know that i tried to call her at the only number i have 908-475-4528. I spoke with her about 6 weeks ago and she was so happy to hear from me and she told me your dad was not doing well.
Please fee free to call me and let me know how she is and if she is at the same facility. My number is 469-293-5869 0r you can text me at 817-403-1077.

Dear Jean and family: The Reilly family was so sad to hear of Tom's passing. He was a good man and a good neighbor. We loved him and will miss him, especially his e mails and his jokes that he always had time to send and be in touch. I will never forget all the times he helped Jean and I set up for our Garage Sales and there were many over the years. Great always to be with Jean and Tom and always fun and laughs. They were good years and I valued and appreciated their good nature and hospitality always and will forever keep those memories in my heart. Love, Regina and Ed R.
I want to extend my sincerest condolences and sympathy to Jean, her children and grandchildren. May God be with all of you in your hour of need. I will miss him very much at the Chelsea
May the sympathy and love of others and Gods words
found in 2 Corinthians 1:2-4 give you the comfort you
need at this time and remember the hope we have in
the fulfillment of His promise found in John 5 : 28.
With my sincere and deepest condolences.
We go back a long way. I was in the wedding party of Jean and Tom! I have many fond memories of good times with Jean and Tom and our families! My favorite story is parking outside St. Michael’s High School in the Pontiac convertible on Tuesdays waiting for Jean and Tom to come out so we could take a ride (I was the driver!).
We go back a long way I was was in Jean and Tom's wedding party! I have many fond memories of times gone by both of Jean and Tom and our families!.
Tommy, we are so sad to hear of your passing. You will be sorely missed. Your picture brings back such fond memories of when you, Vicki, and I worked at Blue Cross.What wonderful times we had together at work and at home. The memories we have of the many Christmases our families traipsed through the woods together looking for a tree to cut down and then celebrating our success on the tailgate of your 1969 'Green Hornet' Ford station wagon with Jean serving rock-n-rye in her good crystal glasses. We still laugh about the time you and Jean cut your tree only to find out afterwards it was the most expensive tree on the farm. We remember the many barbecues at your house in Bloomfield/Nutley and how I would secretly go into your garage and jumble your tools only to have you shaking your head when you found them and then blame the boys. Your neighbors truly appreciated you being the neighborhood caretaker spending tireless days and nights helping them in difficult times. The times I lent you my car only to be chastised by you because of the dirty windshield that you could barely see out of. I recall the many occasions I would give you a hard time and side with Jean when she wanted something new for the house...the blue carpet in the living room comes to mind. We were always so fortunate to have David, TE, and Chris be a few years older than our children and be able to benefit from your and Jean's guidance about what we can expect as our children got older. You and Jean were so special to us and were honored when you agreed to be Anthony's Godparents.
We thank God that we were able to visit with you and Jean last month and enjoy our time together. It was such a pleasure seeing you and Jean and having lunch together.
We are so fortunate to be friends of you, Jean, and the boys for the last 50 years and feel we have been blessed to have been part of your life. Although we will celebrate your life and the time we spent together, I will miss my Email buddy and the fun our families had together for so many years.
Tommy you've dedicated your life to your family and God and now you are resting in peace in his Jesus's arms.
We Love You,
Joe and Vicki

Thomas, there are so many memories of you and Joe. You two were close you shared the love of bowling and just sitting and chatting over a beer. Many nights you would get together after the night shift and just enjoy each others company. Now you can share your time together in Heaven. May you Rest in Peace.
