Tom- I'm so glad that you and I had our chance to reconnect after all these years. I enjoyed our times chatting over lunch together.
It seems like you were starting to really enjoy life more as you were reinventing yourself with working on your new house, your music and DJ-ing. You will be especially missed at our 40th, but know we will all be thinking of you.
Since we didn't have the opportunity while you were here, please save me a spot at the driving range up there. Remember you owe me one! Until then....

Dude you had the kind of smile that always made things right. By now you must be hangin' with Hendrix, Bowser, Kenford, Hartfield and Fox. If they put your previous body at Greenwood, it is in the presence of the best. Keep a seat reserved for me...see you soon.....Kyle

It was so good to connect with friends like you at the Cleveland reunion. I'm so thankful for the wonderful memories I have of those care free times in high school and I'm so sad to know that I'll miss out on the opportunity to see you at future reunions and experience fun times as we look to connect with old friends in our retirement years. You will be missed, Tom!

I keep coming back to this book and the amazing outpouring of friendship and love there is for Tom. Penny and I, our children and grandchildren, will miss him. There are a lot years left that he should have been here to experience. We love you Tom!

We are all very Blessed to have known Tom. I remember the first time I met him in Jr high how respectful, funny, and easy going he was. Tom respected his fellow man without hesitation in regards to which part of the tracks you came from. I will always cherish the the conversation we had at our 35th class reunion and how excited he was that I made the trip to attend, then again Tom made us ALL feel special and welcome in his life no matter how big or how small the friendship. You will be missed my friend but not forgotten.

Im so sorry that i haven't signed Tom Guest Book sooner, but i knew that when i did, that i was admitting that Tom is really gone. I had really hard time in doing so, Karen and Penny im not sure that you really understand just how many lives Tom affected, there were many, some of them are having the same trouble i have had in signing Tom book, but im sure that they will. I remember playing baseball with Tom and if i was having a bad day, Tom was the first to come to me and put his hand on my on my back, and, tell me "it's all right we all have bad days, and when i look into his eyes, I knew that I would be ok. Tom touched alot of us that way he always had something to say that would make everything alright. Please take comfort in knowing that you not sharing Tom loss alone, for we all right beside you. May Peace be your Journey Howard

Oh where do I begin... When I saw Tom for the 1st time since my college days I was estatic to see him. I thought he looked great! A flood of memories came back, like the times him and Mario would pick me up so we could go dancing at Lake Hills etc. They looked Fly like Superfly in their platforms, polyester and brims! LOL! Hanging out at Danny's uncle's Beacon Hill house that they all rented together. Tom turning on the music so we could dance, dance, dance. Dancing to AWB (one of his favorite bands) and let's not forget doing the Bump to Bertha Butt Boogie! Tom had a lot of soul and he could dance! He also had heart!

Danny thank you for bringing him back home where he belonged with his homies from Beacon Hill. It seemed like he was just starting to come out again these past few years so it was a shock to us all!

Dear Penny and Karen, My condolences to you and your loved ones. I just want to say he was very much loved by all of us. How could you not love the guy. He was so.. kind and thoughtful! Therefore I will always have a soft spot in my heart for my dear friend. Memories of him will always live on.

I heard a poem once which I think is fitting. "It's better to have love and lost than never to have lost at all."

We love you Tom. I hope you knew that. I hope you were happy because I speak for all of us who had the fortune to see you and hang with you again that we were so happy to have you back in our lives.

Rest In Peace my friend. Till we meet again.
