    We were sad to hear of Tom’s passing on May 11th. Our thoughts are with Sandra, his family and all his many friends.
    Tom and I were friends during and after high school. Tom was my best friend. We traveled to Denver together in the fall of 1969. Looking for whatever we were looking for. We shared an apartment for a while. It was a good time to be young and in a place like Denver. Things changed and Tom eventually returned to Yankton.
    For those who knew Tom well, cars and music were his passion. We spent hours listening to the likes of Janis Joplin, Jimmy Hendrix, the Beatles and many more. Tom was also quite interested in world and national news. Miss our animated discussions. We did not always agree.
    Expected to see Tom at the Yankton HS 50th reunion in 2017. Tom did not attend. Wish he had. Lots of shared memories to reminisce about.
    A toast in Tom’s honor is in order. Boone’s Farm Apple Wine is my choice as it was a favorite of both of us.
    We will miss you, Tom. Rest in Peace.
    Charlie (Chuck) Flynn
