    I had the privilege of working beside Tom for several years while we worked in the counselling field with CSC. Tom was sincere in all his dealing with clients and his efforts were appreciated by all. He made a difference. It was a pleasure to have worked with Tom and he is fondly remembered.

    Sending to Helen and her family our deepest sympathy and may you know that caring thoughts are with you at this sad time. My name is Wanda ( Burke) Lohnes. Helen I may have been a childhood friend. I come from a large family, and we lived in mulgrave park, north end of Halifax. If I have the Helen that I knew, your family were originally from Middleton, in the valley. I remember fondly, Helen your mom, and your brother Tom. I was born 1954. My family was large 8 at that time. My parents were Douglas and viola Burke. If I have the right Helen, I have cherished memories of your kindness, our friendship was only a couple years living in mulgrave park. If I have the Helen, and Tom Frizzell that I remembered, I always wondered what and where and how life treated your family. Sincerely accept my greatest sympathy with the passing of your brother, I feel your pain, I have lost in death many of my siblings, and parents. Please feel free to contact me at It has been well over 55 yrs, since I've seen you Helen, and maybe you cannot even remember me. That is ok, but I have not forgotten you, your mom, and how kind and thoughtful you were to me. Once again my condolences to you and your extended family. Wanda Lohnes, Bridgewater, N S.
