Just another Castle Highlands golf buddy...saying that Tom will be sorely missed. Tom was hugely respected as a golfer and loved by all at CH. We watched his battle and were amazed at his dignity and strength of character. To Tom's family, I am so sorry for your loss.

Dear Eric

I'm so sorry for your loss. Your father was a good man. My father passed away from cancer as well 2 years ago. We would see your dad often at the oncology center while my dad received treatment. He was always so nice and easy to talk too. I know your dad fought a long and hard battle and I pray that he is now at peace. My deepest sympathy.

Your friend
Tony
