Tom will live on forever, in our hearts, minds and souls. A true story teller and lyricist who brought truth to life. Thank you Tom, for lifting us out of the trenches. You will forever stand for resilience, inspiration and LOVE. Tom said, “Nothing happens by coincidence”, but this makes no sense. Tom, please come back and explain. Because this hurts too much.
