Graham and Lee, Tom was a special friend. He was two days younger than my dad. We first met when Tom was 92. We quickly became best friends. I loved his stories. We played golf often. The last rounds we played, I asked that we played as a twosome. That gave me more time for his stories!! We will miss Tom--our hero and FRIEND!! God Bless you all! Tom's General.

Graham and Lee. I was so sorry to hear about the loss of Tom. He was my mentor when I joined Dealers. We had many discussions about business and life. He and I had so much in common as far as our histories in business. I don’t know that he and I ever disagreed on what needed to be done. After he retired I looked so forward to the third Tuesday of each month to get together for lunch and catch up. We had lost touch in the last few years and I will always regret that. Your father touched so many lives. He was truly a treasure to those who knew himMary Fred and I will have your family’s in our prayers. Sorry we will be out of town for his memorial.
