It was not long after his wife's death that he too was diagnosed with cancer. He said he was getting
better as the cancer was reduced to a very small dot but decided to go through one more round of
In his last email he stated that this time the chemo was kicking his butt. That was a couple days before
he passed. He held a positive attitude until the very end. Very sad as they were both very special people
and Tom was a true friend. One can expect this sort of thing but Tom lived a clean life, no smoking, drinking
