When I first met Tom it seemed like he was a loner. And I knew I was going to have to do some work to be his friend. It did not take long before we came to an understanding with each other. I liked him right off the bat. Tom lived a hard life and he did the best that he could doing it. He was my brother and I'll miss him.

My brother loved birds and he shared that enthusiasm with me. We always had a parakeet in the house when growing up and Tom was lucky enough to raise and race homing pigeons. I remember many, many weekends when the whole family would drive to Centralia or Longview with the pigeons in small cages. Once there Tom let his pigeons out and we would race them home! He did very well with his pigeons and won numerous races. RIP bro. xoxo
