    "I'm so sorry" seems small & insignificant for the loss of such a wonderful man, however better words escape me! To me, Tom was a caring friend, who offered his fatherly guidance. He was wise & gave a wealth of knowledge at the poker tables, even though I am hard headed & didn't want to listen. He had an infectious laugh & a smile that would brighten a room! His quite strength, gentle caring ways & truly genuine hugs warmed my soul! Tom's heart & love of his beautiful family were to me, his strongest assets!! He was funny & fun! He touched many lives & made each better!! I will greatly cherish the years he was a friend & mentor!! Hope he will continue from above! Rest in peace wonderful friend! You were so loved!!

    Tom was one of the nicest people I have met playing poker. It has been a pleasure to know him and the whole Tomjack family. The poker community as well as everyone else lost a really good guy. RIP
