I am so saddened by the passing of sweet Tommy. I met him only once a few years ago, when my sister and I went to visit our long time friend, Kathryn, who was Tommy's aunt. He had dropped by to see Kathryn, and he came in and stayed for just a few minutes. I remember that he was using crutches, for he was having trouble with his legs, and it was hard for him to walk. My sister and I knew that day when we met him that he was a nice guy and that we felt for him and we never forgot him. Over the years, I remember Kathryn and Tommy picking up certain items for each other that were on sale, like paper towels, because they both used the same brand. Kathryn had always told me that Tommy was a a very thoughtful and considerate person, and she also said that anytime he came to visit that when he left he would say "now if you need anything, you give me a call". Then once he backed out into the street to leave, he would roll down the window and say it again, and say bye again. She shared with me that he did this on that last day that she saw him before he passed away. Tommy was a good soul, and he will be missed.
