Good Bye Tom, you will really be missed.
I recall so many happier moments such as when we met with our wives for lunch in downtown Cincinnati. Then two times you invited Bette and me to the Doolittle Reunion. We watched Jimmy Doolittle and his wife dance at the reunion.
We shared a pup tent at Biskra, on the edge of the Sahara Desert. After digging a hole in the sand, the Germans came that night and destroyed my first "Dodo Bird" of our B-26 Maruders.
This past Christmas I sent you a Christmas card with a picture of one of my bomb tages from a mission we flew together and the names of all the crew on June 10, 1943.
I recall very well that you with Charlie Meyers and Holly Grimm were shot down into the Mediterranean on a skip-bombing mission. We were so relieved when we finially heard you were prisioners of war. Those were tough days until Bomber Command took us out of Skip-bombing as losses were too great.
I will really miss you, Tom.
