I had meant to send my condolences earlier. I went to school with Tom at LCA. Tom was a really nice guy, very polite to everyone. I don't think anyone would have anything bad to say about Tom. I am sorry for your loss.

The last time I ran into Allen he talked about his daughter. His face just lit up; he adored her. Words are insufficient at a time like this, but Allen's love for his wife and entire family will never die. He was a good man.
