    Monday afternoon at the BB party at Amsterdam Manor beach bar/deck area, we will be having a "wake" of sorts for Tom. We'll share some cocktails & eat some of his home made sausage & tell stories about him. I think Tom & Karen came to every BB party when they were on the island.

    Tonight we had 23 BB members attend the gathering where we had a toast to Tom and I, EBB, gave out some of Tom's sausage he made.

    Afterwards some of us went out for dinner at Wacky Wahoos

    Tom & Karen became such good friends

    Being in Aruba will never be the same for me. I so enjoyed Tom & Karen dropping by and having a chat and I would often just drive up their street to see if they were at home. If they were, the neighbourhood dogs were all around to welcome me on their patio.

    They were so helpful when we bought our house here, advising us where to buy things and lending us tools etc.

    They would usually have to remind me to go to the BB parties and it always amazed me that no matter how busy they were working on their house they would always have time to welcome newcomers to the Island. They also made time for "old" friends like me to invite me to their home for a BBQ.

    I do hope that Karen will continue to come to the Island but I know it will be hard for her.

    I will really miss Tom,
    Stella
