Tommy was a good friend to many. He was a deep thinking, fun loving, soulful singing , loyal man. I was priveledged to call him my friend. We lived far from each other but were able to stay connected through the internet. The last conversation I had with him I asked him "What makes your heart swell? " He said something like -All the friends I have and the LOVE I am surrounded in and looking down on this beautiful planet from a few thousand feet up. I was blessed to know him .

Tom always had a cool manner about him; he was always friendly and polite, from viewing his pics on FB I could tell he enjoyed life to the fullest.

Very sad to see him leave his physical/earthly life at such an early age.

Renee so glad you kept an active friendship with him,you are teaching us not to let itime go by without reaching out to old friend and cultivating new ones.

Tom and I were the only ones I'm aware of who ended up in the Navy after we graduated.  Tom flew for a few years, before getting out.  I started out enlisted, and then later ended up being commissioned from the ranks.  When we got together at both our thirtieth and fortieth reunions, we swapped sea stories of our experiences - something very brotherly and meaningful to old sailors.  I'll miss him.  Glad he's not suffering from the disease anymore, but I'll always miss old shipmates and the stories.
