    I always remember seeing Tommy coming down the street on his bicycle to play with my brother and sometimes myself. The street was sloped toward our house so he was usually cruising well beyond the speed limit and more often than not, burned tire rubber to respect the stop sign at the bottom. My parents were good friends with Tommy's family and often got together to do things. Lee West and my father used to commiserate every Christmas eve when something they needed to put one of our toys together was missing or broken. They would enlist each other's the help be it batteries or a screwdriver in the late hours of the night. Tommy was fascinated by weather in those days and used to put on a weather show as the forecaster when I would go to his house to play. That was his dream role when were kids. He wanted to be the world's best and most accurate forecaster. It was shocking to hear of his passing. He had contacted me last spring to tell me he was coming to town and wanted to get together. Unfortunately, I was going out of town that weekend so we didn't get to hook up. You will be missed Tom West~ Thanks for being a part of all the wonderful childhood memories I have. May you rest in peace, my friend. My heartfelt condolences to Karen.
