Tom was a unique individual. I consider it an honor to have known him and gladly helped to provide EMS coverage to his events. While almost all of us support one charity or another Tom thought more on a local level and raised thousands of dollars to support local children who needed help with medical problems. I'm willing to bet that for at least the next fifty years not a Halloween will pass where somebody does not think of Tom and I know that somewhere he will be smiling about that.

The Dardani's gave our town a wonderful Halloween tradition for years, and my kids and I still remember the trail very fondly. God bless Tom and his family; they made our town a better place to live. He will not be forgotten. Jennifer P Klein, Kendall Park
