    Dear George, We're so sorry for your loss. Though we didn't get to know Tom well, it didn't take long to see his spirit and why he meant so much to you. He made an instant impression of a gentle and kind, funny and intelligent man. I hope we see you soon.

    I am so very sorry to hear of the loss of Tom. I was privileged to know him well, as an English faculty member. He was also a personal friend. He helped me clean out my father's big storage warehouse and organized a yard sale for me. He found treasures I didn't know were there. I couldn't have done it without him. I remember stress relief parties some of us enjoyed. Before my father's passing,Tom attended an art exhibit for my father on Newbury St. in Boston. He is in a video made for an art student's project on my father. He was filmed as one of the attendants in the Boston show. I will always remember joy and laughter in the English department - Tom really had a great personality and I will always miss him. Barbara Badstubner
