    We are all aching with this incredible loss. My brother from another mother and my real brother, Curry Smith’s best friend. Since we first met Tom at St. Bernard College in Alabama until he followed us home to Orlando he has always been and will forever remain a part of the Smith Family. Sending love and healing light to Patty and the rest of Tom’s friends and family.

    Thanks so much for the picture of Tom. Had not seen him in about 45 years. He called me about a year ago just to catch up. Thought it was great that he did that. It was great hearing from him. I feel lucky to have talked to him. I will be thinking of you all.

    As a long time classmate of Tom’s, I am so sorry to hear of his death. I will always remember him as such a fun, cute, nice guy. We really missed him at all the reunions but he was always included in the stories we told. My thoughts and prayers go out to the Lange family and to Patty. May you find comfort in the many happy memories you have of Tom.
