I was shocked and saddened to hear of my friends' passing. Oscar was in my life for many years, starting with being a great friend to my late husband, Sean and then later with my brother, Bipps. He was always willing to lend a hand, if he could. In this sometimes harsh world, he always maintained a sweetness and caring that I will truly miss. I'm sorry I couldn't be there for the services, as I have recently moved to Florida. Deep sympathy to his mother and family.

Uncle Tom will be loved and missed, gone but he won't be forgotten! He was truly a good soul that would be there whenever you needed him. He was very good to his family and friends. He loved his dogs, and both of them are with family members.

Tom had a very wide array of hobbies, interests and had a great passion for whatever did interest him. Friends, music, photography, horses,
beers, collectables, and a passion for listening to people. And he listened well. He did enjoy life, and its very sorrowful it ended as soon as it did.

We love you Tom! Rest in peace. Mark, Trish, Eric, Morgan, Mandy and Honey.

I only knew Tom briefly through some work projects but he struck me instantly as such a kind and gentle person - the kind of man anyone would be proud to call their friend. He was truly special. Heaven has gained an angel!

Dearest McCue's, I'm so sad for your loss. Tommy and I spent a lot of time together in our teens. I will always remember his kind careful love and friendship. I recall one summer we drove to NY City and climbed to the top of the Statue of Liberty. Oh, and we saw Mohamid Ali train for a fight. My memories of Tommy and the McCue family are the warmest and joy filled of my life.
All my love, all my life.

To the McCue family -- I am so, so sorry to learn of Tom's passing. As a member of our media-training team at a state association for a number of years, Tom was always a delight to work with. He was talented, patient, kind and had a great sense of humor. He will surely be missed! I know he will leave a big hole in your family's heart and perhaps in time, loving memories will fill it.
