Footnote from classmate Corkie Rittgers – “Oh Barbara, such an incredible loss for all of us who knew, served with, and loved Tom. He has been another brother, a comrade in arms and a role model for me. Nothing will be the same now. He was supposed to always be there for all of us…..I’ll think of Tom whenever I hear the pipes playing.”
