To the family of Tom LaFave - words alone cannot express the great loss that each and everyone of you feel at this time... He was a man of deep faith and his belief carried him through these dark days until he was called into the arms of our Eternal Savior. We knew Tom as our next door neighbor on Foxfire Drive for the last 9 plus years, always wearing a smile & usually coming back with a coffee in his hand! We will miss his company as we sit under our maple trees, where we would visit the summer afternoons away. During the winter months he could be seen behind his snow blower, saying after he had finished cleaning up, he would rather mow the grass than snow blow the white stuff! His smile was contagious & his laugh memorable, he would always say that he had the best neighbors anyone could have. He will be greatly missed by many & he would hope that he will be forever in the hearts of those he touched along this path called life... With deepest sympathy; Desiree & Joe Monroe
