A Good Friend Lost
Tom was a good friend of mine and of my late husband, Paul, when we were growing up in Jamaica Plain. He was suppose to be the Best Man in our wedding, but he was taken from us too soon. Paul was also in 'Nam and in '92 he lost his battle with lung cancer after being exposed to Agent Orange during his tour of duty. I know that Tom and Paul are together now and laughing about the good times we had growing up in JP. I love you guys and you're missed every day. Thank you for giving your life so that we may be free!
