My heart goes out to the family and Terri. I first met Tommy thru Terri . I knew who he was, but didn't know him until Terri and him were together. I later worked for him at S&T and I enjoyed working for and with him. It was a second job for me and I loved it there. I have known Terri for 40 years or more . She is the best. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I heard Tommy became ill, no more illness. He is whole again. Try and take comfort there. Much love. Toots
