It is 06/01/19 and I only just found out about Tom's death today, after I looked at an "In Memoriam" list from my high school that we keep on our WHS facebook page. I am simply devastated to find out about this. Although Tom and I didn't keep in touch, he was a very good friend and a neighbor during our high school years. He and his next door neighbor Brad spent many, many, many hours over at my house just hanging out and talking to my parents, as well as me. In fact, I think he was closer to my parents, and they both adored him. My family moved from the neighborhood in 1978, and unfortunately we didn't keep in touch with Tom. Tom was the NICEST guy ever, and so humble and shy as well. I think that's why he liked hanging out at our house so much, he could just relax and be himself and he really enjoyed my parent's company. And I see he was still as handsome as ever. Bless you and the life you built with Tom, Mary K. I am saddened even more to learn that he apparently had some form of Frontotemporal Degeneration. Why does it seem the nicest guys always get the cruelest diseases? I hope they find a cure for this terrible disease in the near future. I am certain his strong faith helped a great deal in dealing with his diagnosis, but I know it was a very difficult path. Wishing you all peace and sending condolences to his entire family. He was a very special human being and we loved him a lot.

Just read of the passing of Tom in the Texas Aggie Magazine. Sad to hear of his passing. Knew Tom during his time in Weatherford. Prayers for Mary Kay and the family.

Tom was a good friend and a good man. I wish we would have continued our A&M yearly reunions but life becomes so busy. Prayers to Mary Kay and family.

I am in shock at this, we had classes together at Texas A&M. May God richly bless you in your loss, your citation of 2 Cor 2 Cor 4:17 is true and beautiful.
