Thanks for posting here, Siu, Tom was such a big presence here at BF, and could keep a rein on things so well. I am still numb about his passing and will miss him terribly. God's Peace for him and his family.

Sorry to hear. Tom established a big tent that included a large and diverse population. He fought a successful battle against great odds.

I'm sorry to hear this. Tom moved through life effectively and gracefully. His mom can be proud of her boy.

May his rest be filled with just the right temperature, only tailwinds, hills or flats to his heart's desire, and 0 flat tires.

Siu,
The nice memorial at the top of the various Forum pages is very appropriate, nicely done and seems like something Tom would appreciate seeing here.
