I was very sad to hear of Tom's passing. When I was introduced to the Davis family through John and attended functions, he was clearly sensitive to my feelings of insecurity and made a point of engaging me in conversation, in an attempt to put me at ease. He seemed a very friendly, intelligent and considerate man and I will remember the kindness that he showed me. With my sincere condolences to his wife Kathy and his entire family, Jennifer Hulswit
