My deepest sympathy to Wanda and boys, the wider O'Neil clan.I have fond memories of Tom's visits to Ireland and meeting with him in Oklahoma. May his kind soul rest in peace. I will pray for you.

I am so saddened to hear about Tom's passing. He was a rare gentleman with a great sense of humor, intellect, and compassion. He truly was a great example for all of us. He always set the bar high and then delivered over and over again. But we celebrate that he is free of his earthly challenges and is now with his Savior (the One who holds him close until we all meet again). Tom's time as an earthly spirit is done and he is delighting in his true spiritual return.

So sorry to learn about Tom's passing. He was a good friend when we worked together at Kerr McGee.
