Damn... What a sudden shock. For one of the most gregarious, sharing, and humble folk I've ever had the pleasure to know. I'll always have fond memories of you Tom. You'd come over to our house to visit my sister Sande. You were such a striking figure in person. Humble and generous. I remember we had the same shoe size. You'd get comped high end sponsored shoes, and send them my way. You and Sande paid for a no expenses barred trip to Cleveland for your Wedding.....You two gave my your house in Tucson to prepare for my own wedding....Generous and down to Earth. Everyone was welcome in your home, wherever it was. A very bright light has been extinguished my Brother. A very bright light indeed. Vaya con Dios mi Hermano with so much Alo'ha Mike
