I remember Tom from so many times when he came to EP clinic. He always lit up my day especially when he brought back shells from one of the many trips to Florida. He knew what each one was and told me the name ( not that I can remember them). I am so sorry to learn about his passing. He will be greatly missed. Elaine Murphy ( Dr VDW nurse)
