I am so very, very sad to learn of Tommy's passing. I will always remember how much fun we had in and out of high school- he could always make me laugh.with his silliness and wit. He was a joy to be around and this world was a brighter place with him in it. To this day I use an expression he came up with - ":I'm going donton to buy a bron gon." (He said this with a Pennsylvania Dutch accent and I always laugh to myself when I think of it. It's supposed to be pronounced "I'm going downtown to buy a brown gown.) .

I also remember him calling me Ruby and that makes me smile to this day.

Oh, precious Tommy. I'm sure you are delighting everyone in Heaven and they all love you already. You were one of those people in my life who has a special place in my heart. You were a sweet, dear, gentle soul. I'm so blessed to have been able to be your friend - even though it was a long time ago. I love you, Tommy.

Linda (Ruby)
