I was so stunned by his death and speechless. I remembered him at MSSD years and saw him around. He was very such nice guy but not knowing untill his death now. That really shocked me big time. He was undergrade MSSD student at that time and I was a senior in 1984. RIP Thomas J. Martin He's in God's hands right now Joanna (Dodd) Jenkins MSSD 1984
