Dated Tom back in the day when he went to Central and I was an Archer. I still have his graduation photo and wrote on the back: "[He's] very shy, in a loud way, and has a swell sense of humor & cute little saddle shoes."

Please accept my sincere condolences on your loss.

When I think of Tom, I remember that sly little grin and that twinkle in his eye . He had his mother's quick wit and sense of humor .. they both gave us some great memories.

Thinking of Tommy always makes me smile. The quiet guy in the room who had the best stories once he would get to talking. When we would get to Fort Wayne, visiting with him and Carol was always a sure thing. Rest in Peace. Uschi Kayser and Virginia Chambers
