Even though we knew Tom for years we didn’t know him as well as others did. But, we consider ourselves fortunate to call him a friend. What a wonderful person. An honest gentleman. Always a pleasure to know.
During this past winter Tom came to our house for a BBQ and shared stories of travel and adventure. What a great house guest he turned out to be. We stayed in touch exchanging more thoughts.
It was always a pleasure to hear his voice during the fishing season because you knew you were going to have a fun type of conversation.
Tom was one of those rare people you occasionally meet in life who are real. I don’t know how else to say that but if you knew Tom then you know what I mean.
