Dear Carol, Your husband brought many a smile and laughter... to of all places...Cardiac rehab where I met Tom. We both continued our physical therapy for our health which resulted in friendship. The conversations were often born in Eagles, card games, Aruba,construction, family and jokes. There were three of us that acquired the staff given title.... The Three Stooges. I never dreamed I would look forward to therapy, but with the great staff and Three Stooges it happened. Tom was like a "fun" salesman giving it away. I only new Tom since 2018 until covid which ended therapy maintenance programs. We maintained "phone contact" but never seen each other again. When I seen you two or we all shared phone conversation you two expressed an appreciation for each other a that should be model for others and something I am certain God Himself is proud of. Short term, Friend, Gary Of the Laura and Gary team
