      I had chance to grow up on Clementine and built a decent friendship with Tom. He always looked out for those of us younger. He encouraged us to not take crap from anyone snd always encouraged us to stay tough, keep your friends close, and family closer.
      I will remember him with fondness and as a brother. My deepest sympathies and condolences along with much respect.
