    Tom and I started to school as classmates at Garfield school and we graduated in the same class of 1944. Tom and his mother used to visit his aunt Cecil Johnson on l5th street and we would converse sitting on the curb in front of the Johnson home. Tom never seemed to meet a stranger and when I returned for the class reunions he and I always had a brief visit. In my mind Tom deserves to be with the angelic host wherever they maybe located.
