To Tom's Family: We were neighbors with Tom for many years and he was such a great man. We got to know each other through our dogs and it seems every conversation was based around them. My lab, Shadow, would get so excited when Tom would walk over to the fence and just loved when he would talk to her and come pet her. He always had a smile and I always enjoyed visiting with him. I lived alone prior to meeting my husband and I always felt he kind of watched out for me. He will be greatly missed and I am so sorry for your loss. Our deepest sympathy. Steve and Patti Cobb
