Dear Tom, Mark, Mike and Mary Beth, Our life in Cortland was made richer knowing your folks. Your dad was the quintessential supportive dad, dedicated husband, and all around nice guy. A true gentleman. We missed he and Kay when they left the area and are sad to know he passed away. Please convey our thoughts to your mom. Don, Linda and Megan Armstrong

I am deeply pained and words are of no help in expressing the sorrow I feel. I was very fond of Tom and always looked forward to our visits. I will miss him dearly.
My sincere condolences to Kay and family.

Oh and Ronnie Laplantes brother Brian was just as guilty of making fun of dad as Ronnie was, but often used as a Waterville/Winslow rolodex, now with the internet poor Brian may seldom be called on for others contacts so I'm asking Brian to join us Tuesday if he can
