    So sad to hear about Tom. I’ve been trying to return your call, Jerry, but your phone seems to be out of order. Rick and I plan to be in Omaha for the visitation and Mass.

    Dear Jerry and Lucy what an earthly loss but such a fabulous gift to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Msgr/Fr. Tom has been a dear friend and close person to me and my family for over 30 years. He came to us from Sacred Heart parish and immediately took over our hearts. You and your family are in my prayers as we move on with oh so many beautiful memories of your brother. Peace be with all of you, always. Janie O’Donnell.

    For the Bob Gradoville family Fr, Furlong was always our family Pastor. He was present at all of our major family functions and we considered him a family member. What a staunch crusader of life he was as well as an exceptional example of what a true Parish Shepherd should be. I’m sure my parents were among those who met him as he entered his eternal Heavenly reward. God bless him and his loving family.

    Msgr. aka Father Tom was a dear friend since our time at Cathedral High School. He is the main reason that I graduated. He drove through a blizzard to marry me to my wife, Paula, 50+ years ago. His blessing was everlasting. When Paula died, he was a tremendous help to me again and again. There is a loss and void from his passing, but not really, because we all know where he now!
