Not the kind of news you want on Thursday afternoon when the wife just called to tell me she bought aisle 6 at the grocery store....
I spent many a session here "talking" with Tom since I joined this group back in the day. Very special skills, and a really great guy on top of it. He will be missed.
He didn't talk too much about his wartime experiences, but although I never served, I was aware of the job that he and others did. If they'd built tunnels big enough for me, we wouldn't have needed Tom.... (Which is why the Air Force didn't want me.)
BTW, I'll be 69 next month. Uh-oh.... Time to buy some Valium for Sammy.
For Tom's friends and family - closer to him than I was - my deepest condolences. May his memory be a blessing.
