To Tom’s loving family,

Please accept my genuine sympathies and my sincere prayers for you and especially for your Dad’s soul in all eternity with your Mom being loved by the LORD! Your Dad was a tremendous witness to me of a Christian gentleman, and a tremendous gift to St. Joseph Parish and the whole Community of Holbrook.

I will offer Mass for your Dad on Monday, 11/2/20, so appropriate when we pray for All Souls! GOD bless you all!

With prayers, gratitude and love,
Fr. Ed

Sincerest sympathy to the Cummings Family. He was so good to my husband Dave when he lost his sight. Tom would take him to the Tri Town Meetings and be sure he got in and out of the house safely. Rest in Peace Tom.
