First moved to Pekin when I was young. Started playing soccer on the Pekin high school team. Didn't know anyone in the town let alone on the team. Tommy made me feel like I had been with everyone for years. Really made me feel like part of the guys. Sorry for the loss. Will always remember you as the guy who made me part of the tem. Rest in peace brother
