    I would like to share some history about Tom for this website. I will also look for some pictures to share that I have of him from the 1970’s when I knew him.

    I was shocked to see this appear again on my FB page and also pleased that Tom is not forgotten. I’ll certainly never forget him. Not that the Commons area is back open I want to finally visit his leaf and leave some remembrances. Tom had an identical twin brother named Leonard and his mother was named Lillian. I’m sure they are long gone too.
    Thank you for all you do to remember those we have lost to homelessness.
