Is there a smiling pic of Tom A?

Recommended Posts

I think that Tom's picture embedded in AVSIM is a great idea...for perpetuity.  I only wonder, if there is a picture that his wife has of Tom smiling, as the only picture of Tom I have ever seen, is the one with him standing by the aircraft, with such a sullen, serious face. I bet that that face lights right up, when the edges are turned upwards. He had a great life, a great wife, and much to smile about, regarding the legacy he left to us. I would sure like to see one with him doing just that! Perhaps his wife could donate one to the AVSIM site....

 

Just a thought....

Then we would want one with him looking off into the horizon or some other type of stance. This picture was his favorite. Why do we want to get rid of his favorite photo of himself? I have several pictures of him too and there are some in the AVSIM Gallery.

Hi Jim;

 

I just thought it would be nice to see him with a smile. I wonder why he looked so terse up on that wing, but if that was Tom's favorite pic...then that's that, ....but since you are on the Board...and if you might sneak in a 'smiler' at some time beside that wing stance...that would be great to view as well!

 

Cheers!

I'll see what I can find. Maybe it would be best for me to link to a gallery of photos of him. Some smiling, some looking very upset at me or someone else (I always looked behind me to see what he was looking at when he looked upset. Funny there was always no one behind me. Hard to figure that one out! B) ). Thanks for your suggestions.

Best regards,

Jim...I just visited the GALLERY, but did not identify any other pictures of Tom.  Which ones are they?  Can you point them out to me. I'm interested in viewing them.

 

Thanks!

And of course, a simple web search brings up many pictures as well.

Bingo!   He looks happy....this picture of him should be cropped, and be the one on Avsim.  Great pic!  Rest in peace, Tom!  There's mirth in your eyes....and IMO, this pic should be the face to forever, greet an AVSIM visiter!

LOL!  More than funny!  Hey Tom!  If you're looking down and watching us, did you see?  No chores after golf!
