Our deepest condolences to the family of Thomas. He was our Buzwah Church organ player and a friend. He would be asked to play at funerals cause he was the best. He would make us laugh cause he was such a jokester. He will be sadly missed 📿. RIP Thomas from us here in Ottawa, Jerry, Maryanne and Pamela Peltier.
