    Tom Malone was my friend all the way back to when we started kindergarten and school at Robert E. Lee. We grew up together. We had like interests. We had cars and horses in grade school and enjoyed camping out often with younger brother Bob in tow. I visited Tom recently when our high school reunions came around. He remembered me last visit and we looked at my car. He loved single malt Scotch. I will miss him.
