Words can not express the hurt and sadness that I'm feeling because of the
passing of my friend and mentor. I am an official today because of Mudd.His
words of encouragement and critique of my skills made me the official I am
today. To the family, may God keep and protect you during this time of bereavement.
May God Richly Bless You is my Prayer.

Dear Linn & Family, I want to offer my deepest condolences to you and the entire
family. Tom and I have been very close friends since first grade at St. Thomas
Aquinas School. We were alter boys for Maureen and Don's wedding and were
part of our group of friends that went to different classmates homes for
our lunch breaks from school.We wouldn't see each other for long times but
when we did it was like we just were together with a group the day or week
fact my wife and I flew together with Tom when he was going to Fla. for the Super
Bowl Trips and spent much time ad Mudd's on Abbott Rd.I couldn't be there
at the Mass but wish I could have been there with you and your family and friends.
