Those are great words Mark -- I remember Tom sweeping the corner of Normantown and 103rd one morning as everyone was coming home. He had that big grin on his face .... like he always did.
I remember running into Tom one afternoon at 7 Bridges and I asked him how his training was going. Tom had stopped running and riding one summer because his dog was dying. His dog would be upset when Tom left -- so Tom stopped leaving because he loved his dog. He was getting in little workouts after work so he didn't leave the house once he came home.
I'll miss him a lot.
