I thought of Tomi often through all these fifty years since I last saw her. We walked to Monroe HS together and shared a love for Nancy Drew Mysteries. She was a very special friend.
One can never forget the fond memories of Sunday afternoons spent together and the wonderful meals Tomi would prepare for everyone.
To Larry, the Smith and LaChapelle families, though we do not see each other as often as we would like, I am greatful to have had Tomi and you in my life.
