  • Dear “Aunt Judy” and Family,

    The Conroy’s grew up hearing all the great stories about the antics of the East Norwalk crowd! Back in 2002 I spoke with Tom for his guidance on some real estate matters. He was always so funny to talk to and my Dad really enjoyed all the hilarious emails and jokes he sent over the years.

    I am going to try and come down to O’Neills. Dad is in Vermont and unable to make it. Heaven must be laughing out loud these days.

    Condolences to you and yours.
