Chomas Alphonso Hilaire, better known as
"Tommy", was born September 19, 1919 to
Thomas and Sylvanee Hilaire.

He was married to Aileen Joseph Hilaire on
May 12, 1954. This marriage produced seven
children of which one, Ftddie, preceded him in
death. fil4d

He was a builder; he built his own house,
and was willing to help and give of himself to
others.

He always looked forward to prepare a future
for his children and grandchildren. I remember see-
ing him passing away into eternity. There was God
at our side. As I prayed I could feel God's presence
in the bedroom that January 15, 1996.

I shed tears but I consoled myself. It's finished
and I was there at his side and I knew he knew
I was praying for him.

You will always be remembered by all of us.

Rest in peace. We all love you Daddy, rest in
peace.
