    Although I live far away and left the area long ago, I learned of Tommy’s passing very quickly via both emails and phone calls. That is just a small indication of the large number of people who have fond memories of Tommy. I regret I did not see him more often over the passing years. Condolences to all. Jerry Mulcahy
