    As I sat today at the service, I was so touched that I was able to be a part, though insignificant, in your life, Tommy Sue (my little quirky nickname for you). For three years, I had the pleasure of Tom coming to Simpleton’s for a drink or two and spreading his laughter and light. No person ever touched everyone in such a way. Always a smile and kind word for every person. He always talked about his family and there was so much pride in his eyes and smile when he did. When I decided to go back to college at a late age, Tom was one of my biggest cheerleaders. He reminded me constantly that I could achieve whatever I wanted. My son had the honor of meeting Tom on a few occasions and while the encounters were brief, the kind, gentle way that Tom interacted with him was admirable. Tom was truly one of the most good hearted, honest, loving people to have ever existed. I am forever grateful to know you my friend! My heart felt condolences to his family as I cannot imagine your loss. I will never lose the place in my heart for Tommy Sue!
    Love,
    Terri Bob (his quirky nickname for me)
