and another thing that i jsut thought of
karen and tom were huge benefactors of animal rights, here on aruba.
many a beast was saved by their generosity
so onbehalf of the 4 legged creatures.......karen your husband will be missed and thanks to both of you for helping the animals of aruba.
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.

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,
