Apr 8, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Indianapolis Star

what a beef you have, no one said he was perfect, but, he was as perfect as they come, he did offer man, many an enjoyment, through his works, and gave much to help many causes, I could go on and on.He was a sweet christian man, at his best, I am sure he had many stresses,. seems you need to chew on the living and not the deceased. you are angry about something. we all get that way at one time or another .You can't take what pleasure Tom has given to many. because he really loved people and God,
