I just learned of Tom's passing. It has been many, many years since I stayed with a young couple in Evanston, while Tom and I worked together to make split pea paste. And there was the wedding when Norman Mark and I kidnapped the lovely bride. My deepest sympathy, Judy, and my most affectionate regards.
Sorry to hear of Tom\'s passing. With sympathy, Dennis Talbert.
I am sorry I can't be there today to tell you of all the lives Tom touched. It was my great fortune to sit next to him for several years with the Port Washington City Band. He was a wonderful musician, a story teller, and even had some jokes every week. He loved his music, that much is obvious to me and the many who knew him. Tom will be missed, but I know I am a better person just to have had the chance to know him. Love and blessings to you all as you grieve his passing.
