I was just reading a thread the other day and thought of how much I missed Tom's advice and knowledge. He sure helped me out a lot when I was just getting into collecting and repairing pens. I also miss Tom because of his love for and caring about America. Offering a hand salute in remembrance.

Tom was a really good man. I am still sorry he is gone.

Still miss Tom's "to the point" postings, written in his typical humorfull approach.

Surely a good man which is missed by all of us.

Still not forgotten.

You all are so sweet for your thoughts and prayers, and the website is indeed still up. I wish I knew how to restore pens, all I know is basic maintenance, brands, and models. And with my school schedule I wouldn't have much time to work on the pens regardless.Thank you all so much, I'm sure you're prayers have contributed greatly to the calm that's been passing through our house recently. Thank all of you so much.

 

Mari, thank you for keeping the website up and your wonderful photography.  Tom will always be in our hearts and is smiling.

 

Please visit Mari's website and sign her guestbook - great images!

When I was a new memeber here, Tom was always gracious and willing to lend a hand. 

 

He is missed!

One of the great things about having Tom repair a pen was his phone call once he had figured out a problem: "When I got the pen open, you'll never guess what I found..." and a large laugh.

Stevesurf, thank you for sharing Mari's picture page!

 

Very talented!


Is it fair for an intelligent and family oriented mammal to be separated from his/her family and spend his/her life starved in a concrete jail?
