It was with deep sorrow I read about the passing of your beloved husband Tom.
I worked for Tom at the AAFES warehouse at Fort Drum for a period of 4 years. Since his retirement, there never has been a better foreman than him. He passed on to us many of his fine qualities .
Respectfully, Joe Dudek

I'm sorry for your loss to the Tallant family. I worked for Tom at JRECK on Arsenal St for several years. You are all in my thoughts as I can't make it to services (live in NC).

My condolences to Tom's family and friends. I knew Tom from his Adams' days, and his return to Jefferson County and his sub shop days. He was one of the good guys, and will be missed by all of us who knew him.
