True friendship is forever (to World Poker Star CaptBogart)

“Living well is the best revenge”

 

I want to thank you, Tom

For always being there

And even in your blues

You always seemed to care

 

You meant so much to all of us

You had that special strength and kindness

You brightened our days

and versioned a light in our blindness

 

Eternally we will remember you

And what you used to say

How made each of us smile

And gifted us with every passing day

 

We miss your presence sadly into tears

We think this can’t be right

Because even after all this time and fears

We sense your kindness in the night

 

We were not ready to say goodbye

We want to believe this isn’t true

We still don’t have a clue

Why the sky became so dark blue

 

On this day our thoughts are floating shares

Friends remain  powerful in arts

On this day we remember you in tears

You are always in our hearts

Thomas Cronkhite, 54, son of Roland and Jeannine Cronkhite of Biddeford, and Bradenton, Florida, died at his home in Bradenton, Florida, on Oct. 13, 2017. Tom spent his first year of life in Nashua, New Hampshire, and the next 10 years in Washington, D.C. After moving to Detroit, Michigan with his parents, Tom completed grade school and high school. He loved camping around Michigan and Ontario, Canada with his family and friends. Tom developed a fascination with homing pigeons. He raised, trained and raced the pigeons, with much success. He was also an avid chess player.

After spending three years in California, he returned to Michigan. While attending the University of Detroit Mercy, where his father taught, he earned his B.S. and M.S. in Computer Science. He continued his career in computer programming in Michigan and later in Bradenton, Florida.

Tom was a loving uncle to his niece Liesl, and nephew Jack, and will be sorely missed by them. He loved to buy presents for them, play in the Gulf of Mexico with them, and most of all, play cards with them. He dearly loved his brother and sister, for whom he would give the shirt off his back.

Tom is survived by his parents; his brother Christopher and his wife Julie, of Biddeford, and Bradenton, Florida; his sister Kara and her children, Liesl and Jack of Dearborn, Michigan; his uncle Richard Cronkhite and his wife Rachelle of Lewiston; his uncle Roger Cronkhite of Biddeford; his uncle Raymond and his significant other Dianne L’Heureux of Biddeford; his uncle Normand and his wife Michele of New Gloucester, and Mill Valley, California. Tom also had many cousins in Maine and Florida.

Our Beloved Tom will be greatly missed by all.

A celebration of Tom’s life will be at St. Andre’s Health Care, 407 Pool Road, Biddeford at noon, Nov. 4.

“Tears In Heaven”

Standard

Would you know my name
If I saw you in heaven?
Would it be the same
If I saw you in heaven?

I must be strong
And carry on
‘Cause I know I don’t belong
Here in heaven

Would you hold my hand
If I saw you in heaven?
Would you help me stand
If I saw you in heaven?

I’ll find my way
Through night and day
‘Cause I know I just can’t stay
Here in heaven

Time can bring you down
Time can bend your knees
Time can break your heart
Have you begging please, begging please

Beyond the door
There’s peace I’m sure
And I know there’ll be no more
Tears in heaven

Would you know my name
If I saw you in heaven?
Would you be the same
If I saw you in heaven?

I must be strong
And carry on
‘Cause I know I don’t belong
Here in heaven

‘Cause I know I don’t belong
Here in heaven
