    Tom was such a great neighbor and a fine person. We spent good times discussing all things of interest as friendly neighbors do. How hard Tom worked being responsible for signeage during my 2010 campaign for Superior Court Judge. He did not know what he was getting into when he volunteered to help. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Karen and the family. God Bless you.

    Hard to hold back the tears and just as hard to come up with just one fond memory, since there are so many. Tom was always so loving and welcoming. I will always appreciate how he took me under his wings when I first started playing WTP. Many people weren't as welcoming in that tight-knit community, but he and the rest of his family were among one of the exceptions. I still remember being late to a tournament in Vegas years and years ago (because, on Tom, Jr. 'S advice, we were at the wrong one) and Sr. was at my table. When I explained to him why, he just smiled, winked and said "why the hell would you listen to him" I'll also never forget our slot machine adventures in Cherokee, and all his selfless volunteer work for P4P.... But most especially, how extremely proud he was of his sons. There was always a twinkle in his eye when he spoke of them. I hope - no, I know he knew it was a mutual feeling for them, as well as anyone who ever had the pleasure to meet him...
