    We have quite a history Tom and I never dreamed that it would end in this way. From dating in the 70’s to being great friends and spending most of our weekends together with our spouse’s and kids. We had a lot of fun back then. I know that you must have been suffering over the past few years. You definitely weren’t yourself. I hope that you are free of all of the things that were bothering you. I could say so many things after our 40 some years but I won’t on your memorial page. I feel like I’m tripping over words. I will miss the great friend that you were. RIP Tom
