My thoughts and prayers are with your families at this time of loss. Tom was my brother’s best friend when he he was killed in WWII and he has been a good family friend ever since. I will always remember him fondly.

Betty – I am so sorry I did not know – Your family was a big part of my
growing up and I will never forget your parents and Judy and Tommy.
Please accept my sincere sympathy.

Betty, I just read about your dad on the Internet. He was a very fine man. It brought back memories of all the good times we had as kids. I just want to let you and Tom know that you are in my prayers. Would love to hear a reply from you sometime.
