Dear Mike and Vicki,
I'm so sorry to hear of Tom's passing. Your brother was one of my two best friends in high school. I have so many good memories with Tom visiting at home with my Mom, at Vantage, along the Columbia River, and photos that look just like the one you have here: same angle of his head, hands clasped at his waist, same gentle smile.
I still think of Tom often, imagine him in my mind's eye happily walking along the water with his dog. Having lived in Juneau several summers I'm familiar with many of the places he loved to be outside.
I've been telling my students in my seminars near Seattle over the last few months I wanted to visit him again.
I send you both my heartfelt condolences.
