Dear Suzanne, I am completely shocked and heart-broken, to hear today that my dear friend Tom has died. I am so sorry that I missed the service. I would have been there no matter what. I will never forget the wonderful times we all had back at 40th st. I didn't see him alot these days, but when I did, it was just like old times. I asked about you and the girls quite often, and he was his usual crazy self. I can't imagine how hard this all is for you. Thank god you and your daughters have family to lean on, to help you through this. If there is anything I can do, please let me know. My deepest condolences, and loving prayers, Cherry.
