    Very nice words Charlie.
    Tom was there for everyone.
    I think about him often and only got to know him in his time of pain.

    He is missed by many.

    Through a cave damp and cold

    On river’s bank or a mountain top

    We ride on, and a spirit won’t stop


    Through this time, we all share

    A bit of spirit, so do take care

    From yesterday and today to you

    We raise a glass and have a brew
    That was great. Thanks for sharing

    Thanks for the reminder, not a great one for dates but I often reflect on Tom and his influence.
    He was a great rally advocate...

    I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Tom a couple times at Bruce's rallies. This anniversary is both happy and sad for me. Happy because I'm glad I had the pleasure of meeting him and sad because he is no longer with us.

    Godspeed Tom.......

    Thanks,
    Joe

    He was one of the good ones, that's for sure.
    I hope his family is doing well.
    And on the seventh day,after resting from all that he had done,God went for a ride on his GS!
    Upon seeing that it was good, he went out again on his ZX14! But just a little bit faster!

    December 2nd was his birthday. He would have been 60. I miss him and think about him all the time. A truly great friend.

    Your honoring his memory is a wonderful thing.

    Tom, was a unique guy. I did not know him real well except for the rallies but he would bend over backwards to help you out. He trailered my ED 300 miles round trip to get a chain installed when it blew on the Shasta Trip.

    I only rode with him once but it was enough to know he was a good man, which is what others always said. All you can do is be happy you got to spend some time with him.
    And on the seventh day,after resting from all that he had done,God went for a ride on his GS!
