Tom was a one of a kind character. Cedar Bluff has seen the end of an era. I knew Tom since 1969 or so, when he first came to Cedar Bluff to live. I'll miss his stories and our fishing trips most of all. I'll also miss his life "advice" that seemed to come from experience (some good, some bad!). Our sympathy is with you at this sad time. Dan L. & Sandy K.
