The Greater Lowell community — indeed, the entire world — has lost Tom Gilroy, a man of great passion and conviction, a great American patriot and a devoted conservative.
He was an important mentor and an inspiration for us all. His voice has been silenced, but he will remain a source of strength for us all as we continue his fight to keep our country great.
Tom, we miss you. You will be the wind beneath our wings as we continue our mission to pursue freedom and what is right and good for our country. Your spirit will be with us as we continue the long and arduous journey to bring our country back to greatness starting in November. The tears will continue to flow for our champion as we strive to take back our country.
We will think of you often as we work to bring our country back to the America that we grew up in. You worked tirelessly to give our children and grandchildren the best country that the world has ever known.
Tom believed that the U.S. cannot continue on its current dangerous path; he felt that November is so important for us to vote for the people that will put America first. He made clear that immigration, political correctness, common core, this administration’s refusal to condemn Islamic terrorism or acknowledge that it exists are destroying our country.
He argued that our immigration system isn’t working; ISIS is sending people here through our immigration system; we need to put the lives of Americans first.
Tom’s goal was always to protect our country, our life, and our liberty. We who embrace his vision and remember his words must continue and win his fight for generations to come.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Tom’s wife Ellie, their children and grandchildren. May your wonderful memories of Tom and your life together give you strength for one another. God bless you and God bless America.
