So Sorry to learn of Tom's passing. I always enjoyed talking to him when he called Dad while I was visiting. I remember the years that we were pen pals at Aunt Val's urging. Tom had a lot of challenges in his life, but he always strived to live it to the fullest of his ability.
I'm so sorry for your loss Kristi, I will never forget some of the phone conversations I had with him. He loved you and would always tell me I don't know what I did :) . Love you!
