Our thoughts & prayers are with Paul and the family. Tom was a lot of fun - seeing him at auctions and the shows managed over the years.

Tommy was my friend for nearly 50 years, and I laughed and enjoyed every moment I spent with him. It was a blessing to know this sweet, good, witty and intelligent man, who I will love forever.
