I remember one day we had so much snow I got my car stuck in the driveway. While Lisa and I were trying to dig me out, so I could get to work , Tom came to the rescue. He came walking over with his snow blower and cleared the drive. He was very much appreciated! Tom seemed to always have a smile on his face. He will be missed.
