I am writing to respond to Tom's story, and to Tom personally. I was a close friend of yours 43 years ago. During 2010-2012, I spent some time Googling to try to find you online and then, in 2013, I saw these stories about you involving Miami Day School online. I live part-time in Miami Beach (close to the Rabbi Gross Hebrew Academy where you previously taught) and in Atlanta most of the time. I hope that I can re-establish contact with you, and also possibly to visit you in FDC when I am in Miami next time. Here is an email address where you can contact me. Maybe we can reconnect in 2014 - mgallivan at AmericaOnline Dot Com
