Tom grew up in a house on the next street from our house. They were a very nice family in our neighborhood. It is so sad that Tom died at what is considered a very young age these days. May the family find peace in their memories.

Tom meant so much to me as a friend, and as a confidant. I enjoyed our talks, our laughter, and his silly sideways smiles!

Im so sorry that I couldn't help you...I suppose you just weren't ready.

I love you always!
