I remember you well.  I am so sad to see another classmate leave us.

Thommy was one of the " Greendale Gang". He was a great guy and had a lot of friends. His mom was always good for a coke on a hot summer day after a ball game or just carousing around. or being  chased off Mr. Snelson's section of woods. Life was a lot more simple back then and I feel very fortunate to have grown up with Tommie and the rest of the "gang". Rest in Peace my good friend.
