Condolences from Connecticut.Tom was a kind hearted person and a good businessman.Early on living on the same street I became unemployed and with a young family I was running out of options when Tom knocked on my front door to offer me a job at Morey’s which I accepted.Then after working there a short time suddenly my father passed away and again the Mitchell’s were there .Cherly and Ryan and your family keep the memories close to your hearts and remember them often.

Tom was a good golfer (he helped me with my game), a good Bocce ball player, an asset on the HOA committee and most of all a good friend. I did not know Tom for that long but felt I knew his family as well as he was always so proud of them. Condolences and prayers to all the family.
