    I have such great, fun memories with Tom and his family out at the lake. Whether we were working, golfing, or bowling, Tom always made it fun. Nicest guy I’ve ever met. My thoughts are with Charlie and Donna and Tom’s family. RIP Tippy.

    Charlie, Donna and Tim:

    My heart breaks at your loss. So much of my life revolved around the Wright family and Tom was such a significant part of that. Yes I was “Tim’s” friend, but as the years passed I became Tom’s friend. And it was as much a gift as was Tim’s friendship.

    Tom was so kind, and his humor was as dry as Bob Newhart’s. He was also like my younger brother Michael. He could tell you the difficult truth in a kind way so that you accepted it and then you did better because you wanted to.

    This planet is a lesser place now for his passing, but it is a far far greater place for his presence here. He touched everyone he ever met with kindness and wisdom and humor.

    Be proud of your Tom….you should be. Know you’ll see him again.
