Tommy was known for his huge mischievous, yet innocent smile. He had a kind word for everyone, and loved with his whole heart. He loved to joke and to make people laugh. Soft spoken, and ever so gentle.
Sometimes the strongest among us are the ones who smile through silent pain, cry behind closed doors, and fight battles nobody knows about.
