Holy cow.
I hadn't noticed this thread and I sent Tom an email last night asking about some lines I wanted built. So here he is apparently in ICU hooked to a ventilator and he is answering my email today saying he is "a bit laid up and will get to me in a couple days"

Now that is dedication to your customers.

Like I said in my response to his email.
Take whatever time you need for your health. I'll be here when you're ready.

A wonderful asset to the EXP community and a great person to do business with. About a year ago I emailed him a hand drawing of a custom fuel line I needed for my -10. H emailed right back, fabricated the line that day and got it in the mail for me. Get Well Soon Tom!

Holy cow, I just saw this as well...

Tom, you can't die, you promised me you'd make new lines for Tony Boy!!!

I'm so happy to hear you're getting better, Friend! Praying for you and Suzanne.

Default Another Update

Spoke with Tom again this afternoon and the news is that the doctors have still not released him to go home yet. Up and around though and expecting to be released tomorrow. I understand there were a couple more sign offs on his "annual" required, resulting in the delay. Happily, he sounded pretty good on the phone.

He should be home tomorrow.
