Dear Family, We were so saddened to see Tom\’s Passing. He is back with Carol again and that is good. We were old neighbors of theirs in Manhattan Beach and had many memorial times with them and quite a few laughs. We enjoyed hearing about and seeing photos of the “old days” in both MB and HB. Tom was a wealth of knowledge as was Carol. we have kept both of them close in our thoughts over the years. Tom was a kind person, generous of his time,funny, and caring. Our deepest sympathies to the family. Otto and Sherry Scholl
