A hug from Tom was always sincere. His words were always honest and kind, but often made you think. He always made me feel like a friend even though he was much older than me. I am sad I will not get another hug like this from Tom in this life. However, I cherish this one deeply, and will strive to be like the kind, sincere, honest, caring man I knew to honor his memory. And hopefully one day get another big hug like this from him.
