So sad to hear of your heartbreak. Time will help you to think not of sadness, but rather of the joy and happiness Thomas brought to the world. Hugs from the Kuhta family.

Dearest Georgalas family, My heart and thoughts are with you all as you grieve for Tom. It was a privilege to spend time with him growing up - he was brilliant and quick witted and so funny. I can picture him as a shaggy haired altar boy (in middle school maybe?) and how excited he was to start working at Bobolink. He was at one point very excited that he had learned to make mozzarella cheese with a drip coffee maker somehow! Tom was such a special human being - I am so sorry for your loss, and my prayers are with all of you. Love, Erin
