Dear Sherry, Ryan and Gabriel; I'm sorry for your loss. I remember Tom being at Healthtrax early mornings when I was there exercising. We always exchanged hello's and smiles. When driving up or down our street we could see how much he enjoyed is front yard garden, as it was beautiful. May Tom's memory be for a blessing. Sincerely, Judy
