I remember very fondly my experiences working with Tom at Williamson Merrill Taylor & Darling. He was talented, generous, insightful, devoted to making a real difference, and always a gentleman. We had many lunches at the country club eating black eyed peas and greens, talking project strategy and figuring out how to make good things happen for our clients. He was a real pillar of the community, and I will never forget the many things I learned from him. Rest in peace.
