Hard to believe! So many great times together in the MFD and NYPD. Tom was a credit to both. So many good times together but my favorite will always be the spontaneous birthday trip to St. Thomas. A classic. Rest well. We'll take it from here.

I will always remember going out on the boat. We had a lot of good times back in the early 80´s. Rest in peace my friend.
