In December of 1959 we moved into our new house at 50th and Lawler. The very first week there I met my new neighbor and friend, Tom. I recall our common interest in Lionel Electric Trains. And that's how our friendship began.

Time always passes, but good memories always remain.

Rest in peace Tom.
