    I don’t know if this is too late, I only just received the link today. Tom and I worked together at both RGIS and WIS where he was the leader of my training teams. He had a superb work ethic and an incredible sense of loyalty. Tom was incredibly good at what he did. I was also privileged that my wife, Sandra, and I were able to meet Vicki who embodied the idea that a great person needs a great partner. Vicki, I am sorry for your loss. My deepest condolences to you and your family.
