Thomas Houlihan was a caring, honest, and good person. The type of man you could trust your life with. My name is Cindy I'm Tom's sister and to this day it is unknown the true intentions Thomas Had that night on the tracks. All evidence has been looked at including a tape of the tragedy and it could not be classified as a suicide on his death certificate. Basicly we will never know because alot of things dont add up and us his family cant say 100% it was suicide knowing my brother. Thomas Houlihan was loved by everyone and was a great man. He will always be greatly missed and loved forever

Hi Cindy,

i went to school with your brother Mike and my brother Joe and he were good friends at one point in time. I also knew Tom. We lived over on Laurel Rd. You were little then, so you probably dont remember me or my brother, but ive been to your house several times.

I am so sad to have just learned of this news. I tried to find you on Myspace and Facebook but I couldnt. My brother Joe also passed away last year, in February. I am so very sorry for your loss. If you want, please contact me through facebook or myspace...i dont want to leave my email address on here. i'd like to know how your brother Mike is doing.
