  2. Dear Family of Tom McMahon, Tom helped me in and out of my car to go to Post-polio Support Group each month when I first began in 1999. He was so encouraging to me and was our Host at refreshments! We will miss him, but both Janet and Tom will be remembered by our Polio Group. You have been blessed by their examples. Love, Marian
