    While I never met Thomas W Dionise, I believe I have through his son Thomas J. Having worked with Thomas J for over 30 years, I see that his son is following in his footsteps of integrity, faith, teaching in his church, even taking vacation to attend retreats. May our Lord and Savior comfort every member ofM7CF the family.

    God bless

    Dear Dionise Family,
    I am so sorry for your loss. What a rich and well lived life Mr. Dionise had and how blessed he must have felt having such a wonderful family. I am sure he is enjoying the glories that we can only imagine at this very moment. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. The Dionise family has a special spot in my heart for so many reasons. I wish I could be there to give you all a hug but I am leaving for Canada to visit a daughter that I have not seen in a year. While I can imagine the pain is still sharp I am sure that in time you will all find solace and comfort in happy memories.
    Most Very Sincerely, Holly

    I have known Tom for many years in my exercise class at the YMCA, both at the new Y and Pine Creek. We were all very shocked to hear of his death. Tom and I would enjoy talking about Alcoa and Penn State football. I worked there for 10 years and we would reminisce about the great place that it was to work. We will miss you Tom.
