a few years back tom came to our rescue in our feud with first energy. they wanted to take out some trees and bushes until tom schooled their botanist on their vital statistics and how unobtrusive they'd be in the future. thanks to tom, they're still there and i don't have to look at my neighbors. behind us...

I remember Tom (and Mixi) fondly, though I knew them only when I was a child, and they were good friends of my  parents. Julie and John, my deepest condolences.

The Wakefield holly tree would never have been recognized without Tom’s help. The Miller family will always be indebted. The bog was the icing on the cake, thanks be to Tom’s insight!
