Tom was a fabulous man. Didn't know each other very well throughout Moline High School, but always seemed to share a laugh and enjoy each other's presence. Same was true when occasionally bumping into each other in adulthood in Moline. Nice guy. Heaven's gain. God Bless.

It's interesting what Tom and I had in common, he getting married at the wonderful Bethel Methodist Church, where I went for Sunday School every Sunday, and he loving to listen to music, and me singing my first solo before an audience as a kid at the same church.Life comes in full circle sometimes. May he rest in eternal peace.🙏
