Tom was a great pal through high school and college. We had some wonderful adventures together. I really enjoyed connecting with him more recently at some of our fraternity golf outings .
So sorry to hear of his passing. Our thoughts and prayers to Rita and family.

Rita and family, Tom was such a great friend. Truly going to miss my visits with him when I stopped over at Midwest. Going to miss his humor on Facebook.
You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.
