Tom was always a sea of sanity in the ocean of chaos that is a television station. We always appreciated the class and dignity he brought to 1422 New Britain Avenue every day of his professional life. Sincere condolences to Sheila and the entire Sequin family.

I am very sorry for your loss. My heart goes out to you in this difficult time. I hope you may find comfort at Revelation 21:4, “And he (God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” We can look forward to the time when God will take away all reasons for distress and he even gives us a hope of a resurrection. (Acts 24:15) I hope this promise brings you comfort as it does me.
