Tom Cak, my uncle, my godfather, godfather to our twin girls....and so very much more.Uncle Tom was a man of unfailing faith and kindness, integrity and humility, with an unmatched desire for learning and sharing with others. A man so passionate for his culture, his community, his church, his work and his gave so much to us all. I will forever cherish your singing "Wake Up Little Susie" and making my sleepy, 6 year old, body dance with you in your effort to wake me for school, the "Dollar for a beer" you would give to me for lunch that would make me laugh, the time and care that you would take, each night, to practice Polish words with me or our time sitting watching A.L.F. together while we laughed at your analysis of the show and it's crazy loved A.L.F. more than I did!Your heart must be filled with joy and comfort, as is mine, that you're now able to smooch Aunt Barb, to sing and dance with her in the hallways again, to be next to your love. I know you missed her so much. We will all miss you but will always remember your brilliance in life and will feel your love that continues within us always.Susie, Josie & Allesia

I am so sorry to hear about Tom’s passing. Your family welcomed us into their home on many occasions and I looked forward to our Christmas get-together every year. Tom and Barb are ever in my memory and I miss them. I will continue to pray for Tom, as he always asked any time we’d part. Love and prayers to you all in this difficult time.

Tom was truly a gentle soul, met him at the Albertine Home, loved & missed his wife, dachshund & photography! Enjoyed his conversation every Friday morning for the last few years. Famous question was always “Is Rock n roll here to stay?” May you rest in eternal peace Tom, you will always be remembered. Happy you came into my life.
