Dear Uncle Tom, I have such amazingly fond memories of our family get togethers up at the lake. Your laugh and smile are imprinted on all that you interact with. I wish my two girls had gotten to experience that over these last two years of Covid isolation. I imagine you sitting on the bench down by the lake with Grandma next to you right now; may you have a long peaceful view across Little Arb. We will miss you dearly. Thank you for your time on this earth and being a part of my life. Nate

So sorry to hear about Tom's passing. As fellow docents at Lincoln Park Zoo we spent many Saturdays educating visitors as well as entertaining them, and Tom was good at both. Condolences to his family.
