â€œYou donâ€™t measure love in time. You measure love in transformation. Sometimes the longest connections yield very little growth, while the briefest of encounters change everything. The heart doesnâ€™t wear a watch â€“ itâ€™s timeless. It doesnâ€™t care how long you know someone… What the heart cares about is resonance. Resonance that opens it, resonance that enlivens it, resonance that calls it home. And when it finds it, the transformation beginsâ€¦â€
Rest in peace, Tom. It was an honor to meet and work with you this past summer. Fran, my sympathies go out to you and your family during this time of great sadness. May you find peace in knowing that his love will always surround you.
