I never had the opportunity to meet him but I can tell he made a lasting impression on all who did. I hope we all can touch others lives the same way!
It seems I am a coarse thread bolt in a world of fine threaded nuts!

I didn't have my red shirt with me, but I had my beloved Red Hat with me and thought about Tom many times today.

In honor of Tom was the reason I was wearing a red shirt down at Willies on Friday.  Banjo

Sure wish he was here to celebrate. :'(. I am sitting here shelling pecans, thinking about all the conversations we had about that.  His memories are good.

I wore a red shirt all day, not planned but I am glad I did. I always enjoyed Tom's posts.

I never said anything Tim, but when I saw you with the Red Shirt on, I immediately thought of Tom.  When the pictures showed up, that was my thought again.

I see that today is a Red Shirt Day in Memory of our FF Friend Tom.

Tom was a Friend that I talked on the phone with several times but never actually met.  He bailed me out several times during my very early "computer" years.  His knowledge, patience, and determination were unparalleled.

I still have his emails saved.  He helped me learn how to sharpen my blades.  He had a desire to help others that is matched by very few.  Banjo

Never met Tom personally, but I've always felt like I knew him.  He was  a very accomplished sawyer, knowledgeable business man, and an awesome  talent as a writer. A wicked sense of humor. I read all his stories on his web site. Possum sandwich and fishing in the parking lot...classics

I had a red shirt on yesterday and even ran my mill. Tom always had my back here as well as being my confidante and friend. If he were still here he would let us know how proud he is of all of us.
