For the couple years that we lived next door to Tom, we felt very special getting to know him and his sense of humor and out pouring love. I enjoyed our little 15 min. Talks each day out side in the spring and summer before I headed to work each day. He always gave a little wave as he saw me drive off. His sweetness will be extremely missed. God Bless You Tom....Bruce and Eenie
