    While i never met Tom, i was lucky to meet you on my infrequent trips to Hickman County at least a couple of times. There is nor was a better place to share a life, a love and i have an idea that you all lived life large and happy, i know you have so very many happy memories and moments. I’m so sorry this has happened, my prayers are with you and the Family.
