My deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Tom. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. I was a classmate with Tom in the Brewer school system. He was such a nice guy and always had a great smile and I see that never changed over the years.

Tom was an irrepressible spirit. He brought joy and humor wherever he went. And his friendships were obviously treasures to him. We were lucky to know you both. We hold you and all who love him, in our hearts.

I met Tom back in grade school. We shared classes, played on baseball teams together, and I knew- even way back then- that I could always call him my friend. Rest in in Peace, Tom Smiley.
