BLESSED and Grateful because of the 12 years I knew and worked with Tom!!!!! Tom was really a great guy and knew the true meaning of friendship – a friend is someone who is there for you and willingly gives of themselves and their time, that was Tom!! He was kind, generous and thoughtful to so many people who were fortunate enough to meet him and work with him at BCD.
Tom was not only my friend he was a mentor to me over the years, always willing to lend a helping hand and share his extensive knowledge of the IT field. He possessed an admirable work ethic and was fun to work with showing patience and a warm smile. Tom's expression was Git 'er done and it seemed to be more than just an expression, for Tom it was an action! I miss his sense of humor and simply miss him -- he is greatly missed by those who knew him and had Tom in their life!!

Happy Birthday Ol Buddy! You were a great friend and the best neighbor of all time! We sure to miss you and think of you on a daily basis. So many great memories of our summer evening talks in the cul-de-sac and your ND farm stories. We thought about planting a tree for you but remember how much you were against having anything in the way of a lawn mower lol. You will always have a big spot in our hearts. Sending our genuine condolences to your family.
