To Tom who I jammed with for a decade. You on guitar and me on the Keyboard. May we get together in the beyond someday on the other side and jam again. Maybe with your favorite music artist Robert Fripp. Even though you had a hard time in matching the proper key you were spot on with the meter of the rhythm. It's no wonder why you choose to play the drums. Just kidding Tom. You will be surely missed. Jim
