I had to wait because I couldn't find the words to say goodbye. I miss you already and can't imagine going to work and having lunch with anyone else. I will never forget the good times and stories we have shared and all the advise you have given me the past 6 years. You will always be missed. Love You Tom!!!

I still can't believe this. Maybe I don't want to believe that this is real. You always made me laugh. You said the most outrageous things and I loved that about you. From our very first convo, I knew instantly I was going to like you. Tom, I wish it isn't so. We will miss you terribly and love you very much. I can't imagine going back to Ohio and not seeing you.
