I met Tom the very first day the Glenridge opened up. It was in the elevator, with my parents, who were also one of the first members of Glenridge. I live in California and visited my parents every three months for many years, and always had dinner with Tom and dessert afterwards in my parents apartment. After my parents both died, I continued to visit Tom - not as often - but always when I came to Tampa to see my mother-in-law. We corresponded by email often, sharing our life stories, which became very special to us both. I planned a trip to see him in just a few weeks. When I did not hear from him I called today and just learned of his death. My heart is broken. I loved him very much. One of the many reasons that we were so close was that we each had lost daughters, both named Deborah. Tom and I were simply kindred spirits. My sadness today runs very deep.

Tom was a dear family friend ever since, along with his new wife Eleanor, he rented our family's attic room in New Brunswick as he studied at Rutgers U. for his PhD. He and I met when I was 4 years old and our families stayed in touch over the years. As I now live about 2 miles from The Glenridge, my wife Lily and I would frequently have lunch with Tom and review his art glass and wood collections. Tom was generous, creative, thoughtful, and kind with a wicked, dry sense of humor.

Lily and I will both miss him. Rest in peace, my friend.
