Tommy and I were good friends. We went to many parties together in his Super Sport. We were in the Air Force the same time but did not know it at the time. Tommy was always having fun and made sure his friends were included in it. I knew Linda as well and it was fitting that they married. I bought my 1st and 2nd MGB from Tommy at the dealer near Willow Lawn after I was married. As we moved around I lost track of him but often told others about the harrowing adventures we had so I still have him in my thoughts.

Tommy and I hung out a lot in high school. We would go west to a country store that his relatives ran to hang out and have fun. The last time I saw him was around 74 when he knocked on my door on Lombardy ave. I forget what he was selling but he was surprised to see me with long hair and a beard. He was a honest and good friend and I will never forget him telling me about the night his father died in a car accident. He said it was late at night or early morning and he sat straight up in bed and had a premonition that his dad was dead, and he was! Call this being psychic or whatever, it just proved to me that we are connected in ways that we can't understand. Good to hear that he had such a lovely family for the short time he was on earth.
