What a wonderful honor it was to have Tommy as my nephew and we shared birthdays(August 19th). From his 1st day on earth to his last he brought so much love and happiness. His love of hockey was so contagious that it inspired all three of my children to love and play the sport through their lives. Tommy will be in my entire thoughts and prayers forever. Love, The Richard Wallace Family

Sherry, Giana and TJ......my heart aches for the life you've all been forced to deal with for so many years. Sherry - you have been one of the strongest wives and mothers I will probably EVER KNOW! I know you've had some help from your family, friends etc., however, I KNOW FIRST HAND what you've had to deal with over the past several years as Tom's condition became increasingly worse. Despite how bad it got YOU found the strength to push through to another day. Caring for 2 small children while working a full time job and caring for Tom wasn't easy and I'm sure that at times you will miss all the madness if only to see him one more day! Giana and TJ are 2 very lucky kids to have such a strong woman as their leader in life. I love you truly and will always be here for you - no matter what.
Vicki DeLuca
