Dear Pam, I graduated from PHS in 1973 with Tom (Shane McGeough). We were in the hiking club at PHS. I remember how much he enjoyed the outdoors. I would see him now and again at my brother Bill's. Bill was a truck driver and would see Tom every time he went through the toll gate at Tom's site on the Turnpike. My brother Bill passed away suddenly in July. Bill rented a cottage in Harpswell for many years. Tom visited and sketched a scene from Harpswell which is now framed and hanging in my living room. My mother and I had attended his art show in Freeport many years ago. Tom was a kind soul and multi talented. I am very sorry to learn of his passing. My condolences to you and your family for your loss.

Dear Shane, I am sad to learn about Billy's passing. We had not heard. What happened with Bill? Did we not meet at a party at Billy's? Thomas was indeed a lovely person. We were in each others heads and hearts. We also loved Billy very much! Such a character! We visited a couple times I think the cottage? I know there was a hot tub. I was trying to reach Bill about Thomas. I am so sorry for your loss. I am so glad you reached out to me! I am not so sure how this mourning process works. I miss him so much. But I am ok. I will try to make the "contact that person work on this too."

My dear sympathies to family and friends. I looked forward to seeing Tom at 48 a couple years ago and hearing stories of concerts he saw back in the day at the Expo. Such a kind soul that I won’t forget. Peace and comfort to you and yours.
