I will never forget Pop (what we called him). I remember whenever I would go to my grandparents house, he would be in his TV room watching and waiting for us to come. Every Christmas morning, I would be so excited not only to open presents, but to see his reaction on his face when I gave him his present. We would talk till he fell asleep, ride on his boat, go to our cabin in Saratoga Springs, Watch football, the news and horse racing, and my grandma Lala (what we called her) would bake things for him so he can eat. It's going to be tough without him, but there will be many things in life that remind us of him.

I remember Tom very well from the years his children were at Seton. He was a great supporter of the school, and a wonderful example of what a husband and father should be. I will always be grateful that he and Anne sent their children to Seton and that they participated actively in the life of the school. Anne, Kevin,Teresa, and Kathleen: You have suffered a great loss,but you can be confident that he is closer to you now than even when he was on earth. May he rest in eternal peace

I met Mr McCabe when I was about 6 years old. Throughout the years he has always been someone who I admired and respected. I could remember as a young boy he would come to my house by subway and get me and bring me to his house in Greenlawn NY. He and Mrs McCabe treated me as if I was a second son. I’ll alway remember his sense of humor. I could always count on him for laughs. I know the things I heard him say shaped my life in a positive way. I’ll always remember going fishing, the fishing stories and the times camping upstate. It was truly a privilege to have known him. I know things will be different without him and he will be missed. “Weeping may come in the evening, but in the morning there is a joyful cry” Rest well.

Mr. McCabe was counselor, mentor and friend to me for many of my late teenage years. He talked me out of some rash decisions, offered some ‘breathing room’ when I could use it, and, hosted many memorable times at his home in near Manassas and his cottage in Reedsville. I always thoroughly enjoyed conversations with Mr. McCabe and always learned from him. Despite having lost contact in later years, I will always have fond memories and a deep respect for this man. Farewell Mr. McCabe, until when we again meet, when I am know we will have a lot to talk about.

Tom McCabe had a profound affect of my life. Without his generosity I would no doubt be a different person. Back in the 1980’s he welcomed me, an English ne'er-do-well into his home with an open heart. My life was blessed by knowing him and I will never forget or fail to appreciate Tom McCabe’s kindness. It will always bring a smile to my face when I recall our 1980’s road trip to Saratoga with Anne, Teresa and Kathleen. Tom jokingly hollering now and again when things went wrong will be a lifelong happy memory. Always good days with Tom, I wish I could live them all again, but sadly I didn’t appreciate how special they were at the time. Thanks to Tom and Anne I have life long friends in the USA, particularly their son Kevin.

Well Tom you will be missed, I will always be grateful that you were around to keep Kevin and I somewhat inline. Especially when we would find free Xmas trees or when I would run out of cigarettes. I Always had a good time down at Smith Point, fishing, cooking and eating whatever was caught. You always had great insight and kept the family first and together. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family in your absence. Rest in Peace my friend….
