A Sad Week

Tom Gardner
It's been a sad week, kids. A dear friend of mine passed away.  I am going to miss him terribly and daily. Tom Gardner, retired Navy, retired Charleston Police Officer, hospital volunteer and good friend to many, was my sidekick in so many projects. For every hair-brained idea I had, he'd ponder for a few minutes, announce how he thought we could pull it off and we did. The only reason I am ever in a picture is because he was a Navy Photographer and would take the camera and turn it on me.

As much as I am relieved that he won't have to suffer, selfishly I am having a bdd time with this and I know I am not alone. Thanks to everyone who stopped by and called today. Let's help each other through this. My sympathy to his family, Gary & Reggie and his sweetheart Diane.
