My wife and I took real estate school from Tom in Roanoke, VA in 2000. He set us on the course for what has been and continues to be a successful real estate career. With the recent hurricane hitting Lake Charles, we were thinking about Tom this morning and wondering if he still lived there and was okay. Needless to say, we were shocked and saddened when we came across news of his passing. We'd like to send our condolences to his friends and family. Tom will continue to live on in our fond memories of him and in the numerous stories he told us as our instructor, many of which I continue to retell to my clients to this day. Farewell friend. May you rest in peace.

We are so shocked and sorry to hear Mr. Z has passed away. We greeted him every Sunday as he passed thru our door at church. He was always cheerful and we just loved him. So sorry to see this and we will miss him.
