    Joy, I am so saddened to hear about Tommy. He was one of my most favorite classmates & I enjoyed seeing you both at our 50th class reunion. Tommy had a great time & wanted to have a reunion every 5 years!! Wish we could have accomplished that request. It is so very hard for us to lose our best friend & soul mate but, thank you God, it’s only for a short time before we see them again. Please know you & the family are in my prayers.
