Please accept our heart-felt sympathy for the passing of Tommy. He was a good man, one of the best all around people that Linda and I and our kids have ever known. He will surely be missed by all his many, many friends and by all who loved him.

Kelly and family,
Sat and I want to extend our condolences to you all. This is such sad news, we didn't get to meet Tommy. I think he would have loved the NoDaks. You're in our prayers.
Linda and Sat Ishigaki
