hello Ted and Peter ... We are very sorry to hear the news about your father. I would have attended your memorial party ted, but my husband and I were in Santa Fe at a meeting and returned late last night. I haven't talked to Jennifer yet but this afternoon Libby called from New York and said how sorry she was to hear your news... and also she asked me to tell you what a great baby sitter you were playing the slow-motion hunting and escaping game. Very best to you both and also to your partner ted.. love and all good things to you... Susan Gallagher Berg, Jennifer Anderholt, and Libby Collins

Tom was a compassionate and beautiful man, one of the most fully realized human beings I've ever known. He demonstrated a great love of life and the joy and fulfillment it can bring us. I was glad to be alive on Earth during the time I knew him.

Tom was a mentor and friend to me and the Writing across the Disciplines program. His leadership with integrating high standards of professional engineering writing through English 277 and his expectations thereafter were an inspiration and affirmation to me as the Director of the Writing Assistants from Engineering and the possibility of campus-wide writing standards. This fall is the 25th anniversary of that program that Engineering led as the first department to contact me while I was still at Valdosta State University. Tom was an exemplary scholar and man. I doubt I will ever know a better colleague than Thomas Nelson. I only regret I did not find out in time to honor you at your funeral or to meet your sons. God speed my friend.
