Diane, please know how very sorry I am and that I am praying for you. Tom was one of the kindest gentleman I have ever known, and I smile when I think back on the many adventures we had at CSC. All of us were blessed by his friendship, his warmth and his genuineness. Not to mention, how smart he was and how significant his contributions were to the success on the BL project. He also demonstrated an amazing love and commitment to you, and to his God. Please know that we love you and will keep you in our thoughts and prayers. Marge
