Dear Jeff, Jennifer, and Sophia~
You do not know me, but Thomas was a dear friend of my nephew, Eric Ganetsky. I have seen the boys play hockey on numerous occasions. My heart aches for your terrible loss and I hope that your memories of the years with him will bring you some comfort. Please know that I am sending condolences and prayers from Virginia for your strength tomorrow and as your family moves forward.
