I knew Tom as a family friend.  I have wonderful memories of his siblings and mine piling into the back of his parents' station wagon after a meal to go to High's for ice cream, among others that now seem an idyllic dream.  Tom had an indelible presence and a face so sympatico, full of depth and barely suppressed humor, forever etched in my memory.  He seemed an old soul, possessed of inner authority.  He was a kind, sweet person, a rare find.  I can only imagine that the pain he experienced from bone cancer was agonizing.

I ran into Charlotte a few times over the years.  She was always lucid and insightful, even whe I ran into her during my volunteer work at Sheppard Pratt Hospital during college.  Later I saw I her struggling on a cane when still relatively young and have to wonder whether some of her problems may have been due to something like Ehlers Daniels syndrome which causes adrenaline surges and gets confused with bipolar, or some sort of connective tissue issue, or fibromyalgia... which was not recognized then, and not enough now.

Mary was very welcoming to me, a newcomer at Pyle.   I remember feeling crestfallen when my parents traipsed throught the snow to pick me up after a a sleepover at her house, where I was being fed steak tartare and fresh homemade doughnuts.  It was exciting at the Foxes.  Mary had an incubator for baby chicks in her bedroom and a very warm family.
