I just saw Tom's obituary and am just devastated, although I am thankful he's no longer suffering. I was one of Tom's patients and he truly changed my life. I've never met anyone I've respected more. There are so many words I could use to describe Tom: Kind, Compassionate, Wise, Witty, Brilliant, Hysterically Funny, and most importantly, he loved his family and friends. I always enjoyed hearing stories of all those closest to him. He loved each and every one of you dearly. My heart aches for your loss as much as it makes me ache to think he is no longer here. I know all of us who were privileged enough to know him are better off for it. I will miss you dearly, my friend.
