I'm so sorry I didn't know of Tom's passing. I called many times & could not reach him. He & Donna were my friends since high school. God bless you all.

Tom befriended me when I was staying with Jim and Carolyn Tankersley. I helped him on his farms on weekends which usually ended with cocktails and beans a card game . I drove a shitty car that I'd park out in front of of his house in San Antonio that would piss him off and he'd make me park it in his garage. Tom got wind I was pretty messed up when my wife left me and called and told me to get my ass down there I said I didn't have the money for a plane ticket. He said Carolyn will make the reservations just get ur ass here.I went back and forth between Texas and New York to work and ended up staying in New York. To raise my boy . Tom and I would call each other and a lot of bullshit could've been heard . We had a lot of laughs. Last time I saw Tom was when he lived in Arkansas then I talked to him after his stroke then he didn't want to talk anymore. I had a hell of a lot of respect for that man gonna miss him
