Dan, Sherry, Matthew,Shannon, Madeline, Tommy, Shauna, Marion and all the Reilly Family:

Please accept our deepest sympathies on the passing of your Father and Grandfather. While I knew there were several Reilly boys when at St. X, I did not realize there were 8 and in turn 45 grandchildren. That speaks volumes for Irish Catholic family values, education and letting the Holy Spirit guide your lives. Be assured he in Heaven and continuing to watch out for all of you. God Bless Thomas and the entire Reilly Clan.

Sylvia & Ed Stein - Jan 15, 2010

Agnes & family: Ed and I are deeply saddened to hear of Tom’s sudden passing and extend our sincere sympathy to all of you. I have always had the utmost admiration for Tom, as you know he had a major impact on my life and career at P&G. He was my favorite champion and guardian angel, and because of his encouragement and support, I achieved more than I ever thought possible. Thanks to Tom, my family benefited, and for that, I’ll be forever grateful. I hope it comforts your family to know that he was very special to those that worked with him, and will always be remembered with the deepest respect. Sincerely, Sylvia Stein.

Dear Mrs. Reilly,
My deepest sympathy at the loss of your husband.

I have never met either of you, but I have taught all of your grandchildren who attended St. Mary School and interacted with your son and his wife.

What a tribute this family is to you and your late husband.

My prayers are with you and your family.

As happens way to often in life we put off those things we ought to do and replace them with meaningless endeavors.
What is more important than the people who had great meaning or impact in your life? So many times in the past years since I left P&G I have wondered how Tom was doing. How was his health; what was he doing to occupy his time; was he enjoying life and retirement as much as he should?

For me those questions remained unanswered as I didn’t take the time to dial the phone, I didn’t take the time to get in the car to visit or just say hi. I am so ashamed of myself for being so thoughtless.

Tom, I am sorry. You meant a lot to me while we shared time at P&G. You always seemed to be on my side when I was troubled. That meant so very much to me. You were always, though not close, a good and valued friend.

I will miss you very much. Thank God that you were a part of my life. God Bless your soul.

I was so sorry to read of your husband and father’s death. My mother, Loraine Anzinger, who died one month before Mr. Reilly, talked about your family every Sunday after Mass for YEARS! Although I was married and gone by then, I always felt as if I knew the Reillys. “So well behaved,” “so ship shape,” “so handsome”, these were all terms of endearment my mother expressed for your family. On her behalf, I express my most heartfelt sympathy.

Eugene, Vicki, Girls & the rest of the Reilly’s. We are very saddened for the loss of your Dad/Husband/Grandpa. Our thoughts and prayers are with you in the difficult time. God Bless You!

Dear Agnes and Family –

My heartfelt sympathy to you and all your family. The news of Tom’s death brought such a sense of sorrow to me to know that my boss whom I worked with for so many years was no longer here. I have such wonderful memories of Tom and all the wonderful times we had in the Tax Department. I remember how kind he was to me when my father died so many years ago and he was always a straight shooter and you knew you could always get an honest answer from him, whether it was what you wanted to hear or not !! — and I truly respected him for that.

To you and your wonderful family, my prayers and sincere sympathy are with you. God Bless You –

All my sympathy to the entire Reilly family. I feel as if a beloved uncle has gone. I suspect there will be a bit more dancing and a party spirit in heaven now that he has arrived.
