  1. Dearest Regina:

    I was so saddened to read about Thomas's death in the paper today. I will always remember his smile and his deep melodic voice. I will miss seeing him at St. Mary's. I loved practicing my Spanish with him. May he rest in God's peace and light and may you be comforted in your sorrow by the same Jesus who welcomed Thomas into His heavenly kingdom.
