    You were a shining example of strength and courage no matter what adversity was thrown in your path. You will be missed forever but always in our hearts.

    I remember Tommy back in 1976 when he drove a Mr. Softie truck in New Jersey. I was a dear friend of his brother Fred that passed away in 1993. but Tommy us to let go in the ice cream truck and make anything we wanted. You were a great brother to Fred and I thank you each day for being there for him. I hope you and Fred and the rest of the Hahner Clan in heaven find each other. Miss you all. Tommy
