Tom was a special part of my life. And in many ways remains a big influence on whom I’ve become.

I suppose we all grow up, get busy and fail to keep in touch.... I hadn’t seen him in a number of years, but each time we did cross paths, it was with great joy.

As a young man, he offered me some sound advice I’ll not share here, but his words sustained me through a dark time and have echoed in my mind many times since.... I can here him now, in my mind as I struggle not to cry over his loss.
