    To Tom’s family and friends; I am so appreciative of the times I spent working with Tom right out of high school at Metro Misquito Control. It was made special partnering with Tom that summer. It was truly only of the best jobs I had. We are sad for your loss. Our prayers and thoughts are with you.
