RIP my friend, Tom. Met up with Tom in '78 following my divorce. Lived in the apartment above Tom for 3 years and it was a time to remember. What a character! Full of life. Tom could sell eggs to chickens, honey to bees and of course, ice to Eskimos. He changed my life forever when he introduced my wife and I at a tennis match in 1988. Thank you, Tom. Will miss big time.
