I read everyone's comments and thank you all so very much. I did read some to Tom and he said thank you to all. All the bad news came from text to Tom's e-mail. The worse one was from a name called TTFN2. Don't know who that is or what it means. Tom will not come back. He did say to tell everyone an old Irish saying "may you be in haven a half hour before the devil knows your dead".
Thank you all so very very much.
