Please accept my sincere sympathy on behalf of myself and my sister, Margie McNamara wife of the late Chuck McNamara, both of whom know Tom and Joann for many years, and worked with Tom at Victor. Margie is unable to express her condolences at this time because she has suffered a broken hip.

I pray that you will all find peace in your loss.

God Bless
