    Tom as a fellow serviceman you will be missed because we were an elite group during our time in service. It was an honor and privilege to get to play card and have such good times during the time we shared together. RIP

    Dear Karen and family, I am so sorry to hear about Tom's passing. I only met him once but always heard what a "great guy" he was. I can't imagine what you're going through right now but I hope and pray that all the good memories of your time together will help you through this difficult time. With love and prayers, Lona

    I'm sorry to regurgitate my Facebook post, but I don't think I could say it any different or better. I loved Tom, and will always hold him close to my heart.... What I remember most? When I first started playing poker, Thomas Tomjack, Jr and Tom, Sr. were the kindest. They were welcoming when other people weren't. Tom, Sr. would let me sit behind him and look at his cards when I wasn't playing. He explained why he made the moves that he did. He always had welcomed and gentle advice for me. He had the best smile, the best laugh, and the best hugs. I've always felt loved for who I am around Tom, Sr. and Jr. They both sparked my everlasting interest in poker, and I'm so grateful. But, besides all that, I'm so grateful for Tom, Sr's spirit and I'm so sad that I didn't get to say goodbye and let him know how much he meant to me. So, I'm putting it out here on Facebook, to say a resounding Thank You, and I Love You. I am sad, but I am grateful. I love you.
