I have so very many fond memories of Tom. He was a wonderful father figure even if you were not his kid. I can't count the times he opened up his home and allow me to make myself at home. I have nothing but good thoughts and smiles when I think of Tom Fields. I feel very blessed to have known him. "Thanks for the memories." Vic Wilcox
