I considered Tom "a good friend". I remember how he always made me laugh with his corny jokes that he shared with me and the other officers. We worked together when he was in CID with ASP and had an office at the Faulkner County Sheriff's Department. Tom was admired by many in law enforcement, and he wore the badge with utmost integrity. RIP my friend. I'll see you again some day and I hope you will have a few more jokes to tell us.
