Dear Tom,

Let me add my voice to that of my friend Leland in making a strong request that you begin to make a record in writing (with photos!) of your most remarkable career.  
My late Dad Oscar would always ''promise'' to start and do it when my siblings and I urged him to do so, as his life was also a most interesting one, but he passed away with nothing on paper, so all was lost.
The Very Best,
