When Tom passed away, my intention was to have some sort
of memorial structure built in his name. Friends, family and
business associates made donations to a fund for this purpose.
Brevard County Parks Department was incredibly supportive
of my efforts and I worked with them for several months to
try to determine a good place for this structure. At the time,
I didn't really have the emotional stamina to keep pursuing
this project so I, instead, made donations to organizations
around the country that just involved donating cash and not
putting a lot of thought into the effort.
Where possible, donations will include a plaque that bears
Tom's name. Some of the plaques also include this saying "Leave
a trail of beautiful memories".
I will continue to look into opportunities to honor Tom both
in and out of Brevard County.
