    I don't know if you remember me, but I was a good friend of Tom's in high school. I was shocked to hear!! I am sorry for your loss, and only wished that I would have kept in touch with Tom. He is a very strong memory in my past, as well as many of his and my other friends I'm sure. I only wish the best for you and your sisters, and pray that you can take some comfort at this time. I will be including you all in my prayers!
