We were so sorry to hear about Tom, Bill and I remember all the good times we had when we were young and living in Kissimmee. Tom was so good to Bill when he first started out in his forestry career with Container Corporation. I remember the time Evelyn and Tom opened up their home for us and our little children to stay with them when my brother-in-law died. We have very fond memories of Tom.
